Back for 2018 is the SAINTCON Hardware Hacking Community (formerly HHV). This community is always packed. We're adding more tables and more soldering stations to keep wait times low. We will have soldering irons, hot air rework stations, IR ovens, helping hands, magnification stations, and all the supplies to go with them. HHC is perfect to come hang out, learn some hardware skills, build a badge, and meet great people.

In 2018, we are bringing back all of the villages, making them better and adding some new. One of the goals for 2018 was to make all aspects of the con more inviting and inclusive than ever before. To help with this, we are re-branding the villages to now be communities to emphasize that these areas are planned, run, driven, and enjoyed by all attendees. The Communities are for everyone to come, make friends, meet experts, mentor beginners, earn Hacker's Challenge points, and have an awesome time. Bring whatever skills and knowledge you have, and let's all improve together.
