Software or hardware engineering


Recommended Posts

Of course we welcome any type of contribution. I could imagine some kind of mailing list where we can openly discuss selections for sensors and other ICs, cost optimizations and so on.

I have a hard time to imagine a true collaboration where many people are working at the design of a circuit board at the same time, as it is done in software. That is just not possible with the open source hardware design tools that are currently available. We already design our hardware openly at github (e.g. https://github.com/Tinkerforge/servo-brick/tree/master/hardware). But if two people were to work at that at the same time, there would be unresolvable merge conflicts every time you push/pull something.

What do you think? How could hardware engineering contributions work?
