Hackerspaces

How we built ours - How you can build yours

Hackerspaces are community-run places where you can meet, work on projects, organize events and workshops, or just generally hang out with other hackers. More and more of those open spaces are being created all the time. Some of them are more than a decade old already, some just started out recently, and yet others might become a reality soon.

Building and running a Hacker Lab is a tough thing. This is a talk about problems encountered, and lessons learnt. In this talk you'll see pictures and hear stories from Hacklabs around the world. Some of them old, some of them new, some big, some small, some squatted, and some of them even government funded, and what problems they've encountered, and how they've dealt with them. These stories are meant to inspire, and convey the mindset and organizational structure some of those hackerspaces have learned, to build and foster their community.
