This friday (3/10) we at GHS are having a hackathon! Rendez-vous at ~20:00 CET, Vegagatan 1 (Gothenburg).
It's an all-nighter, so bring fun. And your cool projects. Bring some food to snack at, nice gamesies to play or just your brain. Don't forget the body, people tend to get awkward without physical avatars nearby. Don't forget the cookies too (we promise hugs, if you like those – no worries if you don't, though).
Also: You don't have to be social if you just want a space to work on your project, there should be plenty of room for everyone.
Peace, net neutrality and datalove <3
We have weekly social gatherings at our physical hackerspace.
|Vegagatan 1, Gothenburg (Sweden)|
Times are fuzzy but not usually not too sloppy.
Full calendar and feed links available.
For more information on how to find us, contact information is probably a good start.
TL;DR Hackerspaces are community-operated physical places,
where people can meet and work on their projects.
A hackerspace is a physical location where many different projects take place, and people from all walks of life meet to discuss ideas related to culture, technology and hacking. There are no restrictions on the types of topics discussed here, even if it's probably largely going to be electronics, software, old fax machines and robots that make everything possible. Robots building other robots or guerilla knitting, for example. It's pretty much up to the members (you!) hanging out here.
The purpose of Gothenburg Hackerspace is to create digital, cultural and social artifacts as well as to disseminate knowledge and promote openness and freedom. The Gothenburg Hackerspace laboratory also manufactures culture.
GHS is a religiously and politically independent non-profit organization (legal info).
Our platforms are open for everyone and to anything that complies with our code of conduct. We will assume all visitors (including you and me) have read and agreed upon this document before arriving to the physical hackerspace(s), or engaging in any of our digital activities. Thanks for understanding this opportunity to keep our world an equal and stimulating space for everyone.
Apart from our regular weekday meetings we have even more stuff going on. Next 30 days:
