Come say hello to the people who are teaching or will be teaching classes at SYN Shop. The dialog with our community to find out what everyone would like to learn, experience or teach continues.

If you like to hack, create, build, make, reverse-engineer, up-cycle, craft, mix multiple technologies, invent and are willing to support others who do, come by and Meet the Teachers.
