What we're about

We are a group of techies, makers, programmers, and entrepreneurs bringing together the tech & maker community in the Hayward and surrounding areas. Many of us are professionals and hobbyists in software development, IT, and electronics.

Our goals include starting a non-profit hackerspace, coworking and community event space in Downtown Hayward.

It's fun working on tech projects. Are you an entrepreneur looking to create a startup? Do you enjoy tech and making things, or just curious and would like to learn something new? You should join us!

Our operating philosophy is that of a do-ocracy (https://communitywiki.org/wiki/DoOcracy). This means if you want something done, do it, but remember to be excellent to each other when doing so. You're encouraged to make use of this meetup group to host your own meetups, and will gladly add you as a co-organizer. Just ask!

All are welcome to join our meetings. We currently meet every 2nd Wednesday and 4th Saturday of the month.

Let's Talk Tech (2nd Wed)

Online event

Whether you're into open source computing, programming, DIY electronics, 3D modeling and printing, or just making neat stuff and finding (or making) places and gear to do it, come and bounce your ideas, projects and hiccups off of other creative- and tech-minded people. Since we'll not be able to meet physically for a while, we will be meeting online. We'll host a bi-weekly video chat every 2nd and 4th Wed evening at 8pm. We can Talk Tech as usual, or just chat about what you're going through. Let's also see if we can brainstorm some tech solutions to some of the issues that people may be facing in our community! We'll be using Jitsi Meet. All you need is the Chrome or Chromium browsers, or the "Jitsi Meet" mobile app on iOS or Android. No account required.
