Freeside Atlanta is a Nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a space for engineers, programmers, inventors, artists, and lunatics to collaborate. We host this meeting every Tuesday so that people can check out the space, chat with members of the organization, and get together to plan projects, events, and classes.
We're trying a new format for these meetings, so we'll do a quick meeting to introduce everyone, we'll update folks on the progress of projects and equipment in the space, announce classes and events, and feature a 10-20 minute talk by a guest lecturer on an interesting subject. Afterwards, we'll break out into a more informal open house so people can chat, get tours of the space, and check out the cool stuff around the space.
This week, our guest lecturer will be Rachel Peterson, who will be speaking about Liberated Tech. Liberated Tech is a new nonprofit in Atlanta that will focus on rebuilding computers and donated tech to distribute to those in need. They will also offer basic classes as well.

The Space is in the Metropolitan Warehouse complex on Metropolitan Pkwy near Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, and you can do one of two things to get to it after entering the gates of the complex -
1 - Take a right after entering the gate, then your first left, which is the back side of the complex
2 - To get to the front door, take the first right shown on the map. To get to the auto bay doors, take the second right shown and drive around to the back side of the complex.
