The Hardware Things community is a Discord chat and audio server that is home to engineers and technologists from across the African continent. The community is built around monthly chats where members keep the others up to date on their work and seek guidance or input from the community. Often, we have a guest come to share their work in a modified Pecha Kucha format. Guests keep the community chats new and interesting, and we’re always looking for new people to join us.
