Hackerspace

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).

2016/07/04 18:00GHS Free Code Workshop The GHS Code Workshop is a free summer course for people who want to try out programming and technology. If you've wanted to try coding, but never knew how to begin, this is a good place to start.\n\nWe'll focus on making a welcoming environment where it's easy to ask questions. Making mistakes is an important part of programming, so we'll encourage a curious behaviour rather than doing everything right on the first try.\n\nThe course material uses Python with PyGame to teach basic programming techniques by making arcade games. It's all non-obligatory, meaning you're welcome to do your own thing if you want.\n\nThe course will be held every monday in July\;\n4th of July\n11th of July\n18th of July\n25th of July\n\nRead more at: http://ghscodeworkshop.blogspot.se/\n\nFor any questions regarding the course, email Sebastian:\nsebastian.vasser@gmail.com\n\nFB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1752464288332849/Omställningsverkstan, Vegagatan 1, 413 11 Göteborg, Sweden
