What we're about
This group was about to expire so I took it over before it was deleted altogether.
The original description of the group was "Hack Claremont" described as "This is a group for anyone interested in hacking, coding, front end / back end development, programming languages....more to come...."
It was meant to be a local place in Claremont where "Hackers" could meetup.. often called a "Hackerspace".
UMakers.org (http://www.umakers.org/) is local digital design and fabrication membership club located on the border of Claremont and Upland, CA. Our shared spaces is for local artists, engineers, entrepreneurs, dreamers and other "Makers" to design and make just about anything. We provide how to classes and access to digital fabrication equipment that most can't afford to purchase on their own. Our growing inventory of mostly digital fabrication tools such as 3D printers, a Roland Print and Cut machine, A laser cutter/engraving machine and a Shopbot CNC router enable our local community members to design, prototype, invent and start new businesses. We are California not for profit trade school on a path to become a 501(C3) not for profit corporation.
