Unofficial casual hacker night

When I came to the makerspace the first time, I was excited to see that it had a lot of physical making. I had assumed most makerspaces grew out of hackerspaces and had tools peripherally, but people here mostly just make stuff, which is way cooler!

That being said, hackerspaces are cool too. If anyone would like to join me, I’m going to try to make time on sunday evenings to hang out in the breakroom and work on whatever fun development project I feel like (lately I’ve been focussed on OpenGL) and treat it as an “open” event. Should anyone want to work on their own project, and bounce ideas off eachother, that’d be cool. I’ll also bring some extra laptops with some compilers, libraries and etc preinstalled so those who want to get into it can come too. I plan to be there around 5pm this sunday.

p.s. if you have a specific project you’d like to try out, but don’t know where to start, let me know. it will at least help me know what to have installed on the laptops

@egillespie used to run a programmer-y kind of meetup if I’m not mistaken. Just looping them in!

When I first read the title I imagined the “secret underground Chinese hacking space” from Mr. Robot. That stuff is cool.

Thanks for the tag, Jimmy!

@billehhg, there’s a bunch of programming enthusiasts that may be interested in this. Head over to https://lansing.codes and click the Slack link to share what you’re doing. I bet there will be people interested in joining you for some hack nights. :slight_smile:

Thank you! I sent them a message and bookmarked a bunch of their events.
