The MK Ireland Discord in collaboration with Tog Hackerspace presents an Irish mechanical keyboard meetup! 4th of December from 3 pm in Tog Hackerspace (D12 CF6V behind Mr Price)
Bring your keyboard(s) along and meet other hobbyists, chat about modding and building keyboards, or if you don’t have a keyboard but are curious about mechanical keyboards, come along and try other people’s keyboards and chat with those in the know.
We’ll have tea and coffee available on site and Tog has an affordable tuck shop with fizzy drinks and snacks.
Please add a donation to your ticket to support this non-profit space. Suggested donation: €10
We are delighted to participate in Culture Night on the 23rd of September. Join a tour to find out what projects and technologies Tog works with. There will be demos of fabrication equipment such as 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, and our CNC’s. During the night you can also try your hand at an electronics project with Arduino or Raspberry Pi or for something completely different learn some lock picking. Listen to brewers describe how they manage to create the perfect beer or the crafts group on their creations. Tog encapsulates all of the maker movement with its many facets but most of all it’s a movement that everyone can take part in.
We are delighted to announce our grand reopening. It’s been a long road these last two years. A lot has happened in that time. We’ve moved to a new space in Bluebell and we have been running many of our regular evening events online. During Covid, we’ve missed a couple of birthday parties, umpteen Open Socials and so many of our other regular open events. It’s time now to breakout and have one monster re-opening bash. Come along on Saturday 28th May. The fun kicks off at about 7PM. Spread the word….. tell all your friends and colleagues. Expect food, birthday cake of course, and whatever else we can rustle up. Bring beer, food, gadgets yourself!
If you’ve never been to the space, we’ll be delighted to give you a tour. It’s still a work in progress, but that’s part of the fun of running a hackerspace. We get to build exactly what we want. If you would like to get even more involved and have the full use of our space, we would be delighted to have you as a full member. Membership brings many benefits. TOG has no funding apart from our amazing members monthly subs, so you could really help to keep a roof over our head by getting involved and joining us.
We are located behind Mr Price and the Bright Lights store on Kylemore Road. There is lots of parking available.
Because of COVID, we can’t hold our regular open social but we have a solution. We have a virtual place to meet. All you need is a browser (firefox is best) and an internet connection. This works on Computers and smartphones.
Mozilla Hubs is an experimental, VR-friendly platform and a tool for communicating and collaborating privately, and allows you to connect with people and bring in resources from around the internet for meetings and virtual events.
This New Year, TOG reached a truly magic milestone of 100 members. From small beginnings in 2009, our membership has grown steadily. TOG had its first meeting on the 21st of January 2009, when a group of 17 people came together with the intention of setting up a new hackerspace in Dublin. In less than 3 months we were up and running with over 20 members and a roof over our head. 11 years later we are in our third space with a more diverse group of members than ever, and new activities like never before. Recent times have seen an active film making community using our space, as well as members individual projects including the making of beds and boats no less!
This coming Saturday 25th January from 7pm, we will be celebrating our combined 11th Birthday, 100th member and regular Open Social all rolled into one. Drop in and see us. We’re not sure if we can fit 100 candles on the birthday cake, but we’ll try! The party is free to attend for both members and visitors alike. No need to book…. just turn up. Drop in for 10 minutes, or stay the whole night. We have parking available. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour of the space. Talk to members and visitors about projects or things that you’d like to do. If you like what you see, ask about joining as a full member. Since the beginning, every new member has brought new skills, their passion for making and their curiosity to us. Come and join us on our journey to 200 members.
