KiCon 2019, the conference for the open source electronics design software #KiCAD , will be in Chicago, Illinois next week.
Sounds like it's the first user-focused KiCAD conference ever.
We're back up, and everything looks fine. Let me know if you notice anything not working properly.
Here's a changelog for the new version: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.8.0

Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
