"Manufacturing The Open Source Desktop Computer" - Louisa Bisio (KiCon 2019)


A beautiful and powerful Linux computer manufactured in Denver, CO: Thelio. This desktop features an open-sourced daughterboard that was designed on KiCad. We share why open source hardware is important for an innovative future. We talk about the details around manufacturing a powerful desktop computer from the initial design, to fabrication to the final build, and the lessons we've learned along the way. In the end, we prove that you don’t have to compromise aesthetics, quality, and performance for open source freedom.

About the speaker:

Louisa works at System76, a Linux computer manufacturer in Colorado and is a big proponent of open source hardware and software. System76 manufactures an open source desktop-computer from raw materials, and she's going to talk about how they build their machines, and why open source is important.

KiCon 2019 was a conference for people who use and love KiCad. For more information: https://kicad-kicon.com
