Ireland now has two active hackerspaces and it has only been a year since the founding of it’s first. There are planed hackerspaces spring up all over the country. Cork, Limerick and Ennis are set to be home for the next wave hackerspaces in Ireland. Also it looks like Northern Ireland might be home its its first space soon.
Some of the members of TOG will be giving a talk in UL , entitled “So you want to build a Hackerspace” on Saturday 27 of February.
*Edit. It now looks like Galway will have a hackerspace soon. Its called 091labs. We wish them the best of luck in getting a space soon.*
Wow! What a week in TOG. For Engineers Week we ran nine events over seven days. Throughout the week we had sixty nine people attending talks and workshops covering radio , pcb’s, arduino , robots and soldering . It has been a great success for all involved, for many participants it was their first time visiting TOG, many found the talks and workshops a great avenue to furthering their interests. Visitors were encouraged by the ethos of the hackerspace and enjoyed the “hack to learn” aspect of the community.
Throughout the coming year TOG will be continuing to host a number of events to foster innovation in science, technology, modern culture and creative arts.
We would like to welcome Bitbucket to the hackerspace community.
