Today at the home of Les.net (an ISP) was the fourth SkullSpace hack-a-thon and there were a ton of people that came out. I didn’t count, but I would guess well over 40 people. There were people working on coding, microcontroller stuff, lock picking, RC stuff, DJing, some talks, a hacking contest, and an all around good time to get to know people of similar interests. There is a Flickr album up here. I’m really looking forward to the next one.
UPDATE: The official SkullSpace Flickr album for the day is here and blog post here.
Last week I attended “Code Camp 2011” and “camped out” in the SkullSpace room. Their talks were really good and they just posted them on their blog: http://www.skullspace.ca/blog/2011/03/code-camp-its-safe-to-say-we-won/
Yesterday I had the honour of attending a hackathon with Winnipeg’s new hackerspace, SkullSpace. I brought my CAN bus boards to do some soldering and also did some lock picking. You can read more about the event on their blog. They are in the process of getting permanent space together, so we met at the Red River College campus (it is a sweet set of buildings and you should check it out if you can). Once they have the legalities and funding (via donations and paid memberships) then they will start equipping a space. I’m really looking forward to it!
