About the event:
The OpenCon San Francisco event will bring together those interested in open access, open data and open education in the Bay Area and will be held in the Manylabs community space for open research and education, which includes a variety of projects including Maker science. The event is on Tuesday, February 7th in the Manylabs workshop space (with drinks and light bites) from 5.30pm-9pm, to discuss some of the open science, open data, open education and Maker work going on in the local area.
Speakers will include:
Stephanie Santoso, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation:
Stephanie served from 2014-2016 as the first-ever Senior Advisor for Making at the White House, where she helped develop President Obama’s Nation of Makers initiative, to broaden access to the Maker Movement. This included planning the first-ever White House Maker Faire and the National Week of Making. She will give a short talk describing what Maker science is.

Doors will open at 5.30, with talks beginning at 6pm, including other talks about preprints in biology and the ASAPbio ambassador program; talks about and demonstrations of projects by Manylabs residents; and an opportunity for attendees or interested people to talk about other projects happening in the area, and generally to foster more discussion among the community in the Bay Area!
