Projects

Everyone coming to dinacon has just 3 simple rules:

  1. Make Something
  2. Document and Share it
  3. Give feedback to at least 2 other folks about their thing!

Many of the projects are collected in our book available to download for free!

Here is also a growing collection of all the amazing projects developed at our fun little jungle/sea conference!
