Personal Branding


HackRVA hosted an event for Personal Branding. Whether your selling maker oriented products, design services, or trying to start that next killer startup; branding is part of the equation. We don’t do a lot of business oriented events, but when we do, we make it sweet. Much was learned. Watch out for more entrepreneurial events on our meetup.

Oscilloscope Training


Oscilloscopes are one of the fundamental tools on an elecontroncis workbench. At HackRVA we introduced the use of the tool and re-familiarized those that were rusty. We have two “O-scopes” at the space with all the fixings. Another one of these workshops is coming soon, so keep tabs on our meetup page for the next event.
