Tech Book Swap

Swap, trade, or give your tech books away! Donate your gently used guides and pick out "new-to-you" titles. There is only one rule - they must be technical in nature. While first claims will be given to those who bring books along, you can attend empty-handed and collect up to 3 books. 

In the mean time, feel free to come by and drop off books T-F 1-9pm Sat. 11-7pm. This event is free and will be followed by a Project Night at The Department of Making + Doing (DM+D). Connect and collaborate on new ideas and technologies, bring a project to work on, or hang out and get to know other people doing great things. (The picture above are actual books that will be there). 

About the space:

The Department of Making + Doing is a hands-on, civic innovation workshop that provides the space, tools + knowledge to empower citizens to make + do great things in Philly. DM+D is a partnership of NextFab Studio, BreadBoard, The Hacktory, and Public Workshop.

      As stated in the description, you can still attend and pick up to 3 books. Just keep in mind those with books will have first pick.

      My kind of books.. zero coding experience beyond HTML back in the day. On the other hand, relatively knowledgeable/intuitive with social media and user-centric design. Just can't code.

    I'm guessing that we won't be able to meet tomorrow if the weather is really crazy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
