It was definitely a great year for FamiLAB!--
- We participated in bio.academany.org 's HTGAA program. It has been amazing, and exhausting, and I'm sad that the 2016 class is almost over.
- We hosted OpenBio Codefest 2016. The most focused and productive group of developers I've ever run into.
- Some of our members attended HOPEXI where the bio presence has been growing nicely. I'm ooking forward to 2018!
- We participated in CGSR's Independent Biotechnology:Innovation-regulation workshop. It was a great event, and I hope that the conversation continues.
- Some of our members attended Biohack The Planet, which was fantastic, and I hope that it becomes a regular event. (Ideally one that is scheduled to proceed or follow SynbiobetaSF just a *little* more closely in the future.)
- For me, the best part was interacting with other spaces. We got a ton of help and support from the folks at BioCurious, CCL, Genspace, and the-odin, and a bunch of great advice from Sebastian. This is a wonderful community, and we are truly grateful to be able to be a part of it.
Stuff that I didn't get to attend this year, but hear was great:
- Synthetic Bio presence at SXSW
- SynbiobetaSF (This is the first year I had to miss it)
- BioHacker village at DefCon
Looking forward to seeing y'all in 2017!

OH YEAH! How could I miss that one? I heard that was a good time, and will be watching to get it in my calendar for next year. :)On Saturday, December 31, 2016 at 1:48:23 PM UTC-5, Koeng wrote:BioHack The Planet conference was this year as well, which was a great event for meeting other people in the community

- At Bricobio we finally found some physical space to start a lab (woo! hometeam)
- BentoLab ran their kickstarter campaign
- Canada held its first DIYbio Summit, bringing together all the Canadian DIYbio spaces, which is a challenge since we're so spread out.
- I visited the Waag Society and the L4B (The LAB? / LA DIYbio) for the first time. Great spaces and amazing people!
- In hacker conferences in the US: HOPEXI happened again featuring more bio content and a biohacking village, DefCon also had a biohacking village. Shout outs to the organizers!
- Thanks to the ODIN a lot of us got to do a DIY CRISPR experiment, which is just one of the many amazing things coming from those guys.I'm sure that I'm missing many other cool things that happened. Anyone else?
