Laos Developers Meeting was a success!


The Laos development meeting was a success! Held at Jaap's makerspace, ZB45 in Amsterdam, 7 people gathered and discussed their Laos related work and questions. Thomas Oster (Visicut) dialed in via Skype. The people from Bitlair presented their progress on (5!) self built large laser cutters, powered by Laos. Springuin offered to make a rev5 Laos board, that solves the hardware bugs that appeared in rev4. In addition, it was suggested to have an informal meeting during the Mini Makerfair in Enschede.
