Welcome!

Garoa Hacker Clube is the first and only Brazilian hackerspace. Being discussed since mid-2009 and built since August 2010, we are currently up and running. Since Nov 18 2010 there is a weekly Arduino night, our longest-running and most popular event. We run other regular activities and our members and visitors run many projects. We have been in a permanent space since September 2010. In February 2013 we relocated to a much larger facility, which is constantly being improved.

We have a Cupcake CNC, Arduinos and other embedded platforms, basic electronics, digital and analog oscilloscopes, a function generator, packet sniffers, soldering and PCB manufacturing tools, old hardware, supplies as ICs, motors and buttons, books, old school video games - and the list goes on.

Location[edit]

Garoa HC is located in Western São Paulo, in a (once) quiet house near Pinheiros subway station (yellow line). Members have the key to the space (which is open to non-members if a member is present), and we usually hang out there on weekends and at night almost every weekday. Everyone is welcome to join us.

   Address: Rua Costa Carvalho - 567 FUNDOS - Pinheiros - São Paulo, SP, Brasil

Note: "fundos" means backyard. There is a door labeled 567, but that's our neighbor. We are at "567 FUNDOS". Look for the big umbrella painted on the wall and follow the looooooooooong aisle.

Events[edit]

Check our website or mailing list before heading to an event. Some events might be canceled on last minute.
