I am helping coordinate an interdisciplinary summer programme called the Biomaker Challenge, where we’re encouraging students, researchers and makers in Cambridge to team up, build and document open biological instrumentation over the summer. We have almost 40 teams now and after much deliberating we have them documenting their projects on github
However, going forward we’d like to link things up better for next year and we don’t have funding to develop a custom website. Has anyone had experience with https://www.hackster.io/ or other community sites that they would recommend? Any open source solutions lurking out there?
The main reasons we’ve looked at hackster.io is that it links people projects and bits of kit quite well and the layout looks good, but I’d be really interested to hear other people’s experiences whether you’ve used these types of systems or custom-built websites.
Thanks in advance for any advice or recommendations!
