What

Usually what goes on is something of a social event, with people talking about all kinds of things, trying out some lock picking, playing video games, sampling bake sale delicacies and generally just having a good time. The original intent was to get the amazing SkullSpace community together to work on projects and bounce ideas around, but it has evolved from that into something of a geek social with a focus on learning something new. There are still a handful of people that come out to work on their projects and everyone is welcome to bring anything they're currently working on to show off or just hack on with others. Even if you know nothing about coding/hacking/etc don't be afraid to stop by, our members are all types of creatives from architects and programmers to graphic designers and amateur radio enthusiasts.


When and Where

August 20 will be the ninth SkullSpace Hackathon! It will be held in our space on the 3rd floor of 125 Adelaide. The event will start at Noon and go until people get bored and go home.
