TOG Hackerspace Turns 15: A Decade and a Half of Community

Celebrate a decade and a half of community at TOG Hackerspace as we mark our 15th birthday on Saturday, January 27th, at 7 pm. From humble beginnings in a hotel gathering, TOG has blossomed into a thriving community in Dublin, now comfortably settled in Motor City behind Mr Price on Kylemore Road.

Over the past 15 years, our hackerspace has witnessed the birth of countless projects—3D printers humming away, locks deftly picked off bridges, lasers meticulously crafted, tools tirelessly employed, and an abundance of Club Mate consumed. And, let’s not forget the unique tradition of knitting electronics and the presence of ducks—lots and lots of ducks.

Join us for a special birthday edition of our Open Social night at our fourth and current space. The festivities promise not only cake but also mouth-watering pizza straight from our oven. Expect the unexpected as we have a few surprises up our sleeves, showcasing the incredible diversity of projects born within our community.

Whether you’re a regular or a first-time visitor, we invite you to explore the wonders of our space in Motor City. We’ll gladly offer a grand tour, ensuring that something intriguing captures your interest. TOG is more than just a hackerspace; it’s a vibrant hub of creativity and innovation.

As we reflect on our journey so far, we invite you to join us in reminiscing about the projects we’ve accomplished and the exciting endeavours we have planned for the next 15 years. Pop in for a quick visit or stay the entire evening, soaking in the atmosphere of passion and collaboration.

Spread the word, bring your friends, and feel free to contribute to the festivities by bringing along beer, food, or your favourite gadgets. TOG is not just an event; it’s an experience, and we want you to be a part of it.

Whether you’re a seasoned maker or someone eager to learn, TOG welcomes you with open arms. Join us on this special night or at our regular free events, and discover the joy of hacking and making with both new and old technologies.

Don’t worry about parking; we’ve got plenty of free spaces available. Come celebrate with us, and let’s make this 15th birthday an unforgettable night of creativity, camaraderie, and shared memories!
