Thank you all for making the day simply fantastic!

Wow, now that was fun :)  What a truly awesome day!!!

Thanks to everyone who came along:  you were all fantastic.  We really appreciated how you were all excellent to each other.  That made the job of the crew significantly easier.  Thanks.

A special thank you to our Contributing Sponsors Swinburne University of Technology, Uniting Church in Australia and 3D Printing Systems.  Thanks also to our assisting sponsor element14 for their support with the soldering workshops, and a special shout out to MakeDo for their wonderful system that made the Maze and partition screens possible.  Without the help we received from our sponsors, it wouldn’t have been possible to host the event.  And of course, thanks to Make and O’Reilly media for their support and encouragement.  Thank you all very much.

The day itself would not have been the intensely fun and fantastic event that it was without our wonderful family of Makers who came along to show their projects and skills.  You folks simply rocked!  And I’d particularly like to thank everyone who traveled from far away to be with us, and to John Bosua for his help with equipment.  Please check out the list of Makers on the Maker page to learn more about their work.

And last, but very much not least, I’d like to officially thank the core team and our other volunteer members of the Mini Maker Faire Melbourne crew.  Please check out the M Team page to find out a bit more about who pitched in to make the event happen.  Truly outstanding help from all of you.  Thanks for making my job a heck of a lot easier.

My thanks again to you all for helping the Connected Community HackerSpace run the first very successful Australasian Mini Maker Faire.  Call me crazy, but I’m already looking forward to doing it again soon!

Welcome to Mini Maker Faire Melbourne!

Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to the Mini Maker Faire Melbourne site!

At the moment, we’re still developing the site, so stay tuned for further pages and regular updates as the event organisation ramps up.

We’ll be officially announcing the venue soon.  Our primary venue choice is confirmed – pending final checks and approvals.

You’ll also have a number of other channels beside this website from which you can get updates: Twitter, Google Plus, a mailing list and possibly even Facebook.  We’ll follow up with an official post about those channels soon.

If you’re a “Maker”, start thinking about what you’d like to exhibit or what you’d like to show or teach others.  Check out the Maker page for registration details.

We’re really excited about hosting this event on Saturday January 14th, 2012, and we’d love you to be part of it.  Mark the date in your calendar now, and drop by regularly over the next few weeks to see how things are shaping up!
