KiCad Workshop

Have you ever wanted to design your own PCB from scratch? Are you curious about the design process and the tools and techniques used by pros and hackers alike? Maybe you have some experience with Eagle PCB and want to try out a free and open source design suite...

Now's your chance to learn KiCad!

KiCad is an electronics design suite that allows you to create schematics, printed circuit boards, and more with few limitations. It is a completely free and open source suite that runs on Linux, OS X, and Windows.

This workshop will cover the basic workflow of KiCad, but will not cover techniques for creating good electronic circuits. The end goal is for you to be able to start a basic project and know where to go for help if you get stuck.

When: Thursday, January 28th from 7:30pm until about 10pm

Cost: Free (but if you like KiCad consider a donation to CERN!)

What to bring: A laptop with KiCad 4 installed (a mouse is recommended, but not required)

No registration necessary. Please show up at least 10 to 15 minutes early so you can get your computer situated and set up.
