Subject: Irish Hackerspaces Week Date: Saturday 14th of August until Sunday 22nd of August Soldering, electronic textiles, photography and 3d printing are just some of the exciting topics for the first annual Irish Hackerspaces Week next week. These events are being hosted by hackerspace groups all over Ireland to highlight the talents, creativity, innovation and opportunity of modern hacker culture in Ireland. Planned events will cover a range for fun and informative topics in the form of presentations, meet-ups and social events. Events are being hosted and organised locally by each hackerspace group, highlighting their facilities and areas of interests. Streamed collaborative events are also planned to showcase the shared identity between hackerspace groups. A hackerspace is a community based around a shared physical workspace with shared resources, where members of that community can come together to collaborate on topics involving science, technology and art. Irish hackerspaces also form part of a growing international community of about 450 hackerspaces. Participating hackerspace groups include 091 Labs in Galway, Hackerspace Cork, HackNI in Belfast, Limerick Hackerspace and TOG in Dublin. The majority of events are free and open to the public, though preregistration may be required due to limits on physical space.
