Hackathon (3/10)

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.

Welcome!

Peace, net neutrality and datalove <3

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).
