AB Open is proud to announce the return of Wuthering Bytes, the three-day festival celebrating interesting and inspiring technology now celebrating its 10-year anniversary – and we’re looking for participants to run events or give presentations.

After global and local conditions caused a three-year hiatus, AB Open is now preparing for Wuthering Bytes’ 10-year anniversary with three days of events – including the always-popular Festival Day on Friday the 25th of August, followed by the two-day Open Source Hardware Camp on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th of August. As with previous years, there is room in the schedule for additional events and AB Open is opening the call for those with ideas for events they would like to run.

Events scheduled as part of Wuthering Bytes 2023 should take place between Saturday the 26th of August and Friday the 1st of September, with considerable flexibility on their scope – from evening affairs for a small handful of participants to multi-day extravaganzas with up to a hundred attendees. The primary venue, Hebden Bridge Town Hall, has availability, with additional venues available should events overlap.

At the same time, the call for participation is open for the Open Source Hardware Camp. If you have a talk you would like to deliver on an open source hardware or related topic, or if you’re interested in running a workshop to help teach attendees a new skill, please submit a proposal by 30th April.

If you’re simply interested in attending as a guest, Wuthering Bytes 2023 will kick off on Friday the 25th of August at the always-welcoming Hebden Bridge Town Hall. While guests for the Festival Day have yet to be announced, we can guarantee a stellar line-up – and that there’ll be something to appeal to all tastes and interests.

If you’d like to know more, head over to the Wuthering Bytes website – and sign up to the mailing list to be notified when more details are available. If you’d like to propose a talk or workshop for Open Source Hardware Camp, see the call for participation for further details.
