What we're about
We are DIY makers, product designers, electronics hackers, artists, 3D printer builders, geek dads and their daughters - anybody from 9 to 99 doing "strange things with electricity"! We meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month from 18:30 until late. Our meetups are very informal; just sign up here and bring a project you've been working on if you like. We usually have most folks coming from Germany, but also people from the Netherlands and Belgium, thanks to Aachen's unique location, plus frequently other nationalities. If you speak German or English you'll be fine! We get together, bring out our projects, have some soft drinks and pizza, and start tinkering or chatting with each other. We offer free access to our Fab Lab Aachen (http://fablab-aachen.de) and its 3D printers, lasercutters, PCB mills, and electronics workshop (you just pay for materials). We offer quick 20-min talk slots if someone would like to share something with everybody (or ask for help!). We've also had some cool special guests, such as Mitch Altman and Burkhard Kainka. We have been meeting every month since 2009, when we started this as the Aachen chapter of Dorkbot (http://dorkbot.org), an international network of makers and artists.
