the OpenPhoenux Hard- and Software Workshop (OHSW) is an annual, nonprofit meeting for people interested in free and open source software and open hardware. At this international meeting they can get to know each other, exchange knowledge and share new ideas and projects.

Throughout one weekend, there will be presentations, discussions and hands-on workshops.
Everybody can take part! So, feel free to submit your own proposals, present your project to an interested audience or help to organize the event. Join us below.
