Mitch Altman is back! And he’s running a bunch of workshops and talks, all in Greater Manchester.

Mitch is the brains behind Cornfield Electronics, and one of the co-founders of Noisebridge Hackerspace in San Francisco. He’s best-known as the inventor of TV-B-Gone, but his list of great hacks and cool electronics includes a lot of other great projects. When he’s not at Noisebridge building awesome and amazing things, he is on the road from hackerspace to Hacker-Con and back again, sharing his love of electronics.
