Hello hackers, Tinkerers, Builders, Crafters, and Makers
In light of the recent news, we can’t just move out without getting together at the bunker one last time:
The Vancouver HackSpace is opening its doors to the general public for an open house and a Super Happy Holiday Hacker House 34!
Due to VHS being forced to move out, we will dedicate this edition to raise funds for the move and everything that comes into play with it. Members and the public are encouraged to organize and sell things for the greater good of the community. We’re trying to figure out the format still. Updates are to follow shortly.
Open house – (noon till 9 PM)
Never been to a hack space before? This is the perfect time to visit! We will give you the grand tour of the space. There will be a BBQ on site during the day if you want to bring something down to cook.
Super Happy Holiday Hacker House – (9 PM – Late)
SH(H)HH a social night where members and non-members are welcome to gather for conversation, beverages, lightning talks, and super happy hacking. Bring your laptops, Arduinos, crafts, and gadgets for a night of merry making!
Lightning talks – (11PM)
Lightning talk is a short presentation on any subject that you want. Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes (2 min or less) and several talks will happen in a single period by different speakers. Challenge coins will given out to the people doing talks. Here is a video of some of our previous lighting talks https://vanhack.ca/wp/2013/10/08/vhs-lightning-talks-video/
Remember to BRING YOUR OWN CUP !
