The dates for this year’s Wuthering Bytes festival and the Open Source Hardware Camp (OSHCamp) have been announced, with a call for participation now open.

This year the Wuthering Bytes festival will be taking place in Hebden Bridge from Friday the 23rd to Saturday the 31st of August inclusive – staring with the popular Festival Day on the Friday and then expanding to host additional events throughout the weekend.

These events include, as always, the Open Source Hardware Camp (OSHCamp), which will be taking place on the Saturday and Sunday as part of the wider festival schedule. The call for participation in OSHCamp is now open, offering a chance to show off your open-source hardware projects, talk about open development practices and principles, highlight interesting open-source tools, or to run a hands-on workshop.

More information on the call for participation is available on the OSHUG mailing list, with a link to submit a proposal; submissions should be made ahead of the deadline of Tuesday the 30th of April at 1700 GMT.

The festival is also open to those interested in hosting their own self-organised events under the Wuthering Bytes umbrella. If you have an idea for an event you’d like to host, drop event organisers Andrew and Tim an email with details. For companies looking to support the festival, Wuthering Bytes sponsorship opportunities are available; contact Andrew via email for more information.

Sign up to the Wuthering Bytes mailing list to receive updates on the schedule and to be notified when you can book your tickets – and we hope to see you there this August!
