Octocon 2022

Octocon, the National Irish Science Fiction Convention, is a weekend celebration of our favourite stories from books, comics, TV, films and games; from science fiction, fantasy, horror and beyond; attracting artists, writers, film-makers and fans from across the human sphere of influence. Octocon is going hybrid this year taking part online and in Croke Park on the 15-16 October 2022.

We are delighted to be taking part in this year’s programme. On Saturday we are hosting a lockpicking session.

As soon as the lock was invented, so was the way to get past it for rogues who need to get through the door at the last minute or hackers breaking into the server room to save the world. TOG, Dublin’s Hackerspace, brings their free lockpicking class to Octocon. Learn about physical security and protective technology, and how to defeat them.

No sign-up required – drop in any time while the workshop is on.


On Sunday we will have a fan table for all attendees who might have questions about what can be done in a maker space and learn about our community. Buy ticket for the event with the link below.
