FOSSASIA Summit 2021 covering Blockchain, Open Hardware, CAD, Design, Electronics and Music, Learn How to Solder on Day 3

It is been a great second day at the FOSSASIA Summit with a focus on open hardware and open science. Thank you very much to all speakers and participants. You find the video of the live stream of day 2 here.

The virtual summit will continue today on Monday 15th March from 13:00 to 23:00 (SGT). We start after lunch with:

  • A panel of industry experts on “How open source has helped proliferate blockchain”
  • Followed by a keynote about “The State of Hyperledger and Enterprise Blockchain” by Brian Behlendorf, General Manager for Blockchain, Healthcare, and Identity initiatives at the Linux Foundation.

Apart from Blockchain, topics of the third day include open hardware, the LambdaChip, and FreeCAD, Linux desktop apps and building an Open Source webcam.

We will have a session about “Physical Interfaces for Live Coding Music”, and in an online workshop of Mitch Altman we will be practicing soldering with the ArduTouch music synthesizer kit and make music, sound, and noise.

In the Lifelong Learning Institute we are running onsite workshops about Python, Git and data science. You can participate remotely in the dedicated virtual video room.
