Garage48 is upon us–here is what’s happening and when

Garage48 !

It started with this: Think you can launch a project from paper to prototype in 48 hours ? and those that have said yes and answered the call are getting ready.

Garage48 is about to start this afternoon.

At this stage all entrants should be fuelling up (caffeine, Red Bull), they should be charging up (cell phones, laptops, netbooks, tablets, cameras) & they should be resting up – at the next 48 hours are going to be HECTIC !

Here is the Agenda of what is happening and when. I have been told that there is no registration or ticket required for the Sunday demo session. This session is open to everyone. So come along and check out what will be produced in just 48 hours !
