I had participated in the panel discussion on “Free/Open Source Hardware - What it means to Design Engineers” at the Electronics For You Expo 2011, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi on Saturday, February 19, 2011 representing Fedora, and Fedora Electronic Lab. Massimo Banzi (Arduino) chaired the session.

The presentation and photos are available. It was good to meet up with Massimo Banzi, Marcus Erlandsson ( and Kyle Wiens (iFixit). Marcus Erlandsson gave a demo of the ORSoC development board:

I was also able to catch up with few Arduino hackers from Delhi. We had a good discussion about open hardware, licensing, community development, hardware hacking, and of course Fedora Electronic Lab. Special thanks to Electronics For You for sponsoring the travel.
