Here's the list so far - please don't hesitate to add more! If you won't be able to attend, you can add your comments here or in the discussion to take part anyway :-)
Let's take up to 2 × 20 minutes before each plenum to show others what we're working on! If you are interested in talking about your projects, please announce it here and/or via the Mailing List:
- Erik will tell something about the Ikea-Haken-Projekt with his son, and his first experience with micropython
- <please add your idea(s)!>
Recap of the last plenum
- Repair Café: if they decide to host an event in the limited space we can open up for it (basically only the common room) we are looking at a date in October - Lukas will stay on it
New (and newly available) tools at the space
=> also see "Wish List"
The Bahnstadtfest is happening next Weekend (July 20th). We still need people to volunteer for the setup in the morning as well as for our stand during the day. Please ask around who will be available. We also need some further projects to show.
euVENTION Hackathon Support
As announced over the Makers list: The CoMakingSpace will be supporting the euVENTION Summer School's Hackathon on Saturday, July 27. This is a great opportunity to experience the atmosphere of a Hackathon and also help to raise awareness of the CoMakingSpace.
Patrick and Ciaran will help support the Hackathon participants with developing prototypes for their project challenges. We will have an array of Arduino, Raspberry PI and other electronic kits as well as 3D Printers to help with the rapid prototyping. Afterwards, the kits will be available for the CoMakingSpace to use for other events, seminars or projects.
If there is anyone interested in joining the fun, as a supplemental volunteer, please contact Ciaran directly to discuss the details.
Note: Our 3D Printer farm comes from supporting this same event two years ago. Great that the farm can return to it's roots for a Hackathon holiday before coming back to its home here at the CoMakingSpace.

What went wrong?
Nobody likes bad surprises - please remember that anything wrong with amy piece of equipment should be reported and shared with the others immediately! One can open an issue, send an eMail around, talk to a manager...it only takes a few minutes!
The 3d printers have had some issues lately that could be due to some filament used. In general they are often not cleaned up well enough.
The drill bits are handled very badly and some (e.g. the 16mm spade bit) have been bend.
What went well?
We're getting close to 70 members! Four people joined last week :-D
What should get done at the space (new issues)?
a Wednesday in August: temp. 7. August, but due to the low number of members attending a fixed date could not be found.
