After an exciting week of talks, come join us for the final two of the week! This event even has some hands on, interactive sandboxes and electronics to play with if that's something you enjoy. Join us at Bearden Beer Market as we wrap up the festival, and say thank you to everyone that participated and helped make this year happen.
