I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to each and every one of the MakerGram Team for making MakerChat0x1B an outstanding success. Your dedication and hard work truly shone through, and I couldn't be prouder of our team and our incredible community.

This MakerChat, titled "Year-end MakerChat Community Gathering," was a significant milestone for us. It allowed us to come together as a community, share our vision for MakerChat and MakerGram, and collect valuable feedback and suggestions from all of you. We have exciting plans for the future, including expanding to multiple cities in India and even beyond. Your participation and input were crucial in shaping our path forward.

This event, being our year-end gathering, had a special place in my heart, and I couldn't help but miss the presence of our entire team. I wish you all could have been there to experience the magic with us.

Abhay, you've once again been the backbone of our operations. Your dedication, from planning the event structure to staying late until dinner, was exceptional. I'm grateful for your unwavering commitment.

Rafi and his brother Ranish, despite their busy family functions and work schedules, put in remarkable effort, even late into the night. Your dedication is highly commendable.

Salman, a big shoutout to you for remotely managing your part flawlessly, even across different time zones and during your travels. Your feedback and support, even after 1:00 AM following a long journey, didn't go unnoticed. We missed you, mate!

Reema Shaji (Project Manager, TinkerSpace), thank you for your incredible help with recording the voiceover for our Instagram content. Your support and encouragement to learners at TinkerSpace to attend the event made a significant impact.

Fablab Team (Saheen, Mufeed, Midlaj, Sreyas), your presence and willingness to answer questions and share opportunities at SuperFab Lab Kochi were greatly appreciated.


Rohit, your journey with computers and FPGAs was truly incredible to hear. Thank you for sharing your unique perspective and experiences with us.


Varsha, your engagement with the audience and your story of learning Assembly language made the event engaging and interesting.

Johnson (Operations Officer - Administration & Finance, TinkerSpace), thank you for helping us set up the venue and patiently capturing the final group photo.

All the wonderful community members, your presence, feedback, and suggestions are invaluable. Thanks for making the effort to show up on a Saturday evening. Together, we'll make MakerChat even better and a greater success!

And last but not least, thanks to all the great human beings who made TinkerSpace possible. This place & the people here are the backbone of MakerChat and many such events in Kochi. We’re always grateful to you all for facilitating this amazing hackerspace, the first of its kind in Kerala. Your contributions have made the impossible possible. Even as I write this note, I'm sitting at Space!

Special thanks to Mehar (CEO, TinkerHub),  Kurian (COO, TinkerHub), and all the other great people behind this for their dedication and hard work in making TinkerSpace a reality!

With lots of Love and Gratitude 💕,
For MakerGram
