NYC Soldering Championships Answered

Apparently, for all of you in the NYC area, July 29th (next-next tuesday) is the NYC Soldering Championships.

"With solder irons blazing, and the power of molten metal at their finger tips, New York City's electricity enthusiasts and hardware hackers will connect components to complete circuits for the glory of being the fastest soldering gun in NYC."

The end goal is to solder an entire electronics kit (which has not yet been chosen) as fast as possible. Unfortunately, you must be 21 or older to enter.....

After the competition, the Ignite NYC talks will begin, several of which seem quite... interesting...

For registration and more information, check out NYC Resistor's site.

I have never been "fast" although I have gained some "accuracy" over the years. :-)

You know thats not him, right? :P Anyway, I can't solder quickly, but if encouraged to, I bet I'm in the 40th percentile :P I hope there's SMD components! QFP's could be painful :P
