About HackerspaceLA...

Hackerspace Los Angeles weekly meet up. Come by and mingle with like-minded people and see what others are working on. Find out what planned activities do we have and how you can participate.

If you are interested in helping us establish a permanent location in the San Fernando Valley you need to be here to help us plan this and make it happen.

We’ll still be holding classes/workshops on various interests once a month. I will be posting the schedule later in the week and it will be announced in a separate meetup for each of the workshops.
