Ignite NYC: Soldering, Guerilla Knitting, & Bomb Shelters

ignite nyc

The first Ignite NYC is going to happen 7/29 at M1-5. We are going to feature 16 speakers. Each speaker will get 20 slides that auto-advance after 15 seconds for a total of five-minutes. Ignite is free and open to the public — you’re on your own for drinks. We’re also going to be joined by Ignite co-creator, Bre Pettis. Bre is going to lead us in a creative soldering contest. RSVP at Upcoming or Facebook to let us know you are coming. The night will begin with:

7:00PM – Doors Open

7:30PM – NYC Soldering Championship:

With solder irons blazing, and the power of molten metal at their finger tips, New York City’s electricity enthusiasts and hardware hackers will connect components to complete circuits for the glory of being the fastest soldering gun in NYC.

On stage and under hot lights, contestants will complete an electronics kit in the shortest time possible while still maintaining the integrity of the circuit. Who will be New York City’s soldering champion? You’ll need to be there to find out!

To solder you’ll have to pre-register, but anyone can come enjoy the opening contest. After the contest, there will be:

8:00PM – Ignite Talks

You can see Ignite Seattle talks from February on YouTube. If you are interested in doing your own Ignite — like the recent ones in Portland and Paris and the upcoming Phoenix event- check out the Ignite community site and read the HowTo.
