Fixme is a hackerspace in the Lausanne region, Switzerland. Our weekly meetings are on Wednesdays from 19h, electronic meetings are on Fridays from 19h, and CTF trainings are on some Mondays from 19h. Feel free to come for a visit!

The Fixme hackerspace in the Lausanne region welcomes you with open arms. We host weekly general, electronics and CTF meetings, as well as events on other days, such as workshops, debates, CTFs, and more. The hackerspace can be accessed by foot (15 minutes from Renens-VD or Prilly-Malley), bus (Bus 17, Renens-Village; Bus 32/33, Chêne), or car. It is located in the IRL+ building, on the "2ème étage" (that's the 3rd floor in English), in the Univercité space.

At the space you'll find something for everyone: we have everything from giant plasma cutters to soldering irons, as well as everything in between - 3D printers, CNC machines, laser cutters, woodworking machinery, digital fabrication tools, PCB fabrication tools, solder rework equipment, as well as a huge selection of new and used components (looking for 1kw laser optics? or bitcoin miner parts? yup, we have that). People-wise we're very open and awesome. Amongst the 100+ members, ~80 of whom pay membership fees, we have students, hackers, ceos, marketers, technicians, apprentices, designers, bitcoin experts, startup founders, teachers,... we're incredibly open to everyone and we don't bite (but we may nibble a bit ;). We also have a ton of space available, with close to 1000m² usable by anyone. There is a 250m² workshop area, a 100m² conference area, a 150m² co-working area, a 250m² bio-hacklab, and more. There are currently plans to put in place a kitchen/café/bar, a war/project room, as well as a sleeping/showering area for visitors and temporary residents.

We obviously have a large selection of drinks (4 different beers; club mate), snacks, arduinos, raspberry pi's, usb chargers/cables, and more on sale!
