Come to our first public event this Sunday!
April 27 from 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM (or possibly later!)
1525 Newton St NW, (located within the St Stephen & Incarnation Church).
Cost: FREE, but please bring a tool/furniture/electronic scrap to donate!
Why: We started HacDC to give the Washington DC area a place to make, build, disassemble, code, learn and do all the awesome things you can do in a “hacker space”. Like nycresistor.com in New York and thehacktory.org in Philly, DC now has its own collaboration and creative space, HacDC! However, we can’t do it without your support. We rely on you!
How: Bring something you think our space would need (and can be carried up the stairs ourselves–no elevator!):
- Tools! (Power tools, electronic test equipment, soldering irons, etc.)
- Furniture (especially folding chairs and shelving!)
- Electronics (working and non-working things we can disassemble!)
- Food and Beverages (to keep people going while working on projects!)
Enjoy the party! Dissassemble something! Learn how to pick and secure your own locks! Throw a demo of your own making.
We’re also looking for charter members, people who are dedicated to building a stronger DIY/Hacker community in DC. We are a non-profit DC organization seeking 501(c)(3) status, and all of our work goes directly back into the community through educational, scientific and cultural channels.
