Wind-Down BBQ for Dublin Maker

After a hectic day of making and showing off at Dublin Maker, we like to relax with a burger in one hand and an umbrella in the other. So on Sunday 27th of July, we’re hosting a BBQ for makers to eat, chat and start planning next year’s projects.
It’ll kick off in TOG from 2pm, rain or shine. Print
If you’re a maker, bring your Dublin Maker badge with you and we’ll fill you with grub.
If you’re not a maker, but you want to rub shoulders with us, you’re welcome to join us (and make a small donation to the cost of the food). Just let us know by email or in the comments that you’re popping along.

5th Birthday Party!

It’s been five years since a group of people came together to form Ireland’s first hackerspace in Dublin. It’s been a roller coaster ride for all of us, but here we are.

Are you a long term member? Come along and remininsce!
Are you a new member? Come along see a TOG Birthday Bash!
Been to TOG a few times? Come along and party with us!
Never been to TOG, but interested? Come along, find out about us, and have a good time!

The TOG AGM will be held that evening 6pm to 8pm, which is only open to TOG members. BYOB. No charge. ROAR.

Irish Hackerspaces Week 2012

Irish Hackerspace Week 2012 Logo
Irish Hackerspace Week 2012

This year Irish Hackerspaces Week falls between September 15th – 23rd. This gives hackerspaces around Ireland a chance to expand their reach in to the local community.

TOG has already started to get events ready for this week. Sept 15th and 16th is the Synchronous Hackathon weekend which is a great weekend to get people aware of that can happen in a hackerspace. Our usual Open Social is on the 15th to kick off the whole weekend. We also have a yearly quiz on the last weekend ( Saturday 22nd ), and get all the hackerspaces together via audio/video link with questions dished out by our very own TOG Quiz Master.

Apart from those weekend activities, during the week we are planning electronics and craft activities, a night of short talks on various topics and a Gastro Night, discussing food science and beer brewing 🙂

As the calendar for this week comes together we will be posting a schedule for all to see.

Watch this space.

Birthday Party

Saturday the 28th of January 2012 marks TOG’s 3rd birthday. You know
what that means.

PARTY!!!! And yellow rubber ducks.

The plan is to start at around 19:00 in TOG. Our last few get togethers
have been a great success and keep getting better so let’s try to top
them all. Make it passed 05:00 this time!

Hacking, eating, drinking, making, gaming, singing, dancing, arranging
rubber ducks into various positions – whatever takes your fancy.

So come one, come all. Bring your good self, your friends, your family,
vagrants, strangers, pets, more rubber ducks, plastic army men and
anything else you think may or may not be appropriate. Everyone is

We hope to see you all there.
