save the dateGulf Coast Makers were in abundance at the recent Maker Faire Orlando September 13 & 14. In addition to the ones captured in photos here – FreeFab 3D, Tampa Hackerspace, Eureka! Factory, Gabotronics, Nepchune’s Noise Circus, Tampa Bay Inventors Council, In10Did and Pedicure Pedestal - Johnson Arms was on hand and no doubt several other locals.

Now we’re getting ready to do our own big thing here in the spring, with planning well underway for Gulf Coast MakerCon 2015!  Save the date: April 18th, 2015, again at the Florida Fairgrounds in the Special Events Center West.

We’ve got some awesome fun on tap, including plans for the first ever Gulf Coast MakerCon Steampunk Ball!

If you don’t want to miss any of the action, or the opportunity to be first in line when our Call for Makers opens, be sure to sign up here.

We also welcome guest blogs, and news, photos and updates about local Makers, upcoming events, and more.  We’ve got a great Gulf Coast Makers community and invite you to be an active part of it!
