David Pierini with Cult of Mac has published a nice series of articles about KansasFest:

- This guy makes badly aged Apple computers sparkle again
- KansasFest solder session proves there’s fun in melting metal
- KansasFest is a second-chance childhood for one programmer
- KansasFest: Final notes from ‘Nerdvana’

We had four excellent HackFest entries. I'll let the videos speak for themselves. You may also download disk images and source code.

KansasFest 2017 will be held at Rockhurst University, July 18th-23rd. Mark your calendar and make plans to attend!

Spin up your floppy drives and start hacking Wednesday morning.
The photo roster compiled by Martin Haye at KansasFest 2016 is currently available in PDF format (1.6 MB, version 5 from 7/24/16 11:14am) here: PhotoRoster2016
