What we're about

Hackerspace Gent (0x20, formerly Whitespace) is a hackerspace in the wonderful city of Ghent, Belgium. It is a physical space run by a group of people dedicated to various aspects of constructive & creative tinkering. Don't worry, we won't break into your computer. The hacker culture is a subculture of individuals who enjoy the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming the limitations of current technologies to achieve novel and clever outcomes. The culture consists of, but is not limited to: computing, networking, programming, music, gaming, electronics, lockpicking, woodworking, robotics, science fiction...

However, the defining characteristic of a hacker is not the activities performed themselves, but the manner in which it is done. A hacker is someone who invents, constructs, learns, shares, trains basic skills and is willing to think outside the box to find a creative solution to a problem.

Everyone is welcome! Every Thursday evening we get together to enjoy a beer while we talk about technology, discuss various topics, and share philosophies. These social evenings (and sometimes social nights) are open for everyone so join us if you want to get nerdy!
