ATX Hackerspace[edit]

What is it?[edit]

After far too much talking and not enough doing, we've finally found a space to create some awesome projects. We have leased a new space!

We're primarily located in "Cameron Business Park" at [9701 Dessau Rd. Suite 304 Austin, TX 78754]. The space is perfect for artists, designers, engineers, hackers, fabbers, scientists, musicians, seminars and workshops, coworking, and a ton of other stuff. Anything that needs a space, involves loud equipment, messy equipment (woodworking, soldering/welding, painting), power equipment (120V, 240V, and 3-phase power available), or ventilation for fumes (etching, spray painting, varnish, etc).

More importantly, we're looking to establish a community. There are lots of different groups in Austin, and friends meeting at coffee shops, bars, and homes. If we combine skills, knowledge, ideas, tools, and materials, just imagine the massive projects that could be undertaken! Even if you're not into any of this, but want to learn, there will be some very smart and fun people around to help teach.

Objectives[edit]

  • Create an open community of hackers, artists, and open source/hardware enthusiasts to create, share, learn, and collaborate.
  • Help spread knowledge to the larger community, especially in the areas of technology, DIY, security, and privacy.
  • Provide a space for creating, collaborations, workshops, and classes.
  • Provide resources (hardware, tools, materials, access, knowledge) to members and the community.
  • Assist other groups that share similar objectives.
  • Seek to enable others, and others' projects; to help break down barriers; and to avoid erecting barriers.
