Maker Night

RSVP Essential: You need to be on the list to ensure we can let you in!

Our first maker night in makespace! In the words of SHDC (the original club we ran that led us to create makespace), "An excuse to geek out on pet projects or startup ideas in the company of other enthusiastic people. If you hack around with electronics, software, web technologies or mechanics, come and join in!"

To be clear, there is no furniture or equipment (or even internet!!) in the space yet, so don't expect too much!

Making on the night is encouraged, but given this is the first one and there is little equipment, we'd really encourage a bit of show and tell:

Bring your current/past/future projects and ideas to show off, and find out about others!

We'll try and find a load of tables to put projects/plans on...

Agenda

7.00pm - 11.30pm: The space will be open; come and meet people, show off your projects and ideas, even work on something!

8.00pm: We'll present a Makespace update for those interested

8.30pm: Maybe some micro-pitches/lighting talks for anyone to introduce themselves and their project

Getting There

See the Makespace location and entrance map for how to get there and find the entrance. Note there is no parking available onsite, so if you are coming by car you'll have to park elsewhere and walk in. There are bike racks onsite.

    A great evening for a room with nothing in it :) An energetic start to what is going to be an amazing resource

    Is it now impossible to RSVP?

    September 27, 2012

  • Dave

    I will be turning up late - what time does it go on till?

      If you go to the right hand (east) side of the building seen on this map: http://goo.gl/maps/5A...­ there's a door which looks into the makespace, where you can probably get someone's attention.

      September 26, 2012

    • Laura J.

      We won't be using that back door - it is an emergency exit only - but we'll try to make it easy to reach us from the front door (even with very limited cell coverage :)

      If you're lucky, you might find a space opposite the Hancock

      September 24, 2012

    • Dan R.

      Probably your best bet is to try Queen's Rd. It has quite a lot of on-street parking. http://goo.gl/maps/oe...­

    What sort of meeting will this be? Can I bring my dremel and my soldering iron, or will this be a social meeting?

    September 17, 2012

    • Simon F.

      Given the numbers, I think this will infact be quite social, but definitely encourage you to bring projects to show and work on

    I would have brought a cake :) but unfortunately I got sports training with a team which I can't change. So next time!

    September 25, 2012

  • Jasmine T.

    I'm taking a train in from London, still looking for lodging accommodations...any advice?

    September 25, 2012

  • Simon F.

    Yes, i forgot that rule. Anyone who is new (ie never attended SHDC/Maker Night before) must bring cake. That is by far the best rule i ever made!

    September 20, 2012

    • Wojciech M.

      I can bake a cake; no other guarantees than teeth replacement next day :)

      September 24, 2012

    • Wojciech M.

      BTW: We could just order pizza? No baking soda involved.

      September 24, 2012

  • Steve L.

    I`ll be there, if thats OK with you all.... I promise I dont bite!

    September 24, 2012

  • John L.

    Sorry I can't attend, but this clashes with another meeting :( so hopefully next time.

    September 22, 2012

  • Steve U.

    Guess I'd better go via Tescos then :)

    September 21, 2012

  • Jonathan A.

    I remember at SHDC we had one awesome rule: If it is your first time, you have to bring cake....

    As this is the spiritual successor to SHDC, let's keep the rule!

    Hi Robert, we'll want to look at any donations before accepting them just to avoid us being a junk dump, so perhaps bring a photo to the meetup, and we can see if they could be useful

    September 20, 2012

  • Simon F.

    Hi Richard; good spot, i've tried to teach meetup better now...

    In case anyone's confused, the (map) link above is linking to the wrong Mill lane (in Sawston), not the the Mill Lane in Cambridge!

    Adding the postcode seems to help Google out a bit..

    I have 7 chairs I would really like to get out of my house. It will take about 4 trips with my bike trailer to move them. If they are wanted when can I start moving them?

    September 19, 2012

  • Simon F.

    Good questions, will confirm details around parking nearer the time

    September 17, 2012

  • Simon F.

    We will be making :) Social as a side effect.

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.
