The hackerspace movement in Ireland has expanded over the last three-four months. With three hackerspaces moving into new premises 091 Labs in Galway, Hackerspace Cork and TOG in Dublin. And with good progress with another two groups actively looking for premises including HackNI in Belfast and Limerick Hackerspace.
So with an eye on a bit of blatant self promotion, we’ve decided to run a number of events next week 14th-22nd of August and call the whole series Irish Hackerspaces Week. We are hoping to use the events to show our spaces and Irish hacker culture in a good light in both the local and national media, while providing a range fun and informative talks, workshops and social events.
The week has been scheduled to coincide with the 10th Global Synchronous Hackathon on the weekend of the 21st-22nd of August. So hopefully we’ll be able to interact with a wider range of hackerspaces worldwide.
