We are Root Access Hackerspace, the very first Hackerspace in the San Joaquin area! We do net security, electronics, coding, 3D printing, laser cutting, sewing, crafting, woodworking, and a whole lot more!
Linux is a family of free and Open Source operating systems that is used all over the world for all sorts of things. If you've used an Android phone, you've used Linux. If you've ever navigated the web, you've used web servers powered by Linux. You can run Linux on your PC, and many of us do!
Our monthly Linux Night is hosted most often by Steve Hollingsworth, a Lead Site Reliability Engineer at Barracuda Networks who has a ton of Linux knowledge to share. Come hang out and learn about Linux! We'll have tips for both beginners and advanced users, machines to test linux on, and flash drives to even convert your computer over if you like. ;)
For those getting started on their coding journey or just looking to add to their skills Free Code Camp is a great website and resource. We do paired programming, group troubleshooting, and community sessions about the tech work scene.
Pair programming or just hanging out. Join us on Facebook! (https://www.facebook.com/groups/free.code.camp.fresno.ca)
Calling all crafters!
Grab your needles (or hooks) and join us for an evening at the Hackerspace with friends who knit, embroider, or crochet. This is an open group to all crafty wine lovers (and those who don't enjoy grown-up grape juice). There is no formal instruction or structure to this meetup, but there are sure to be people willing to help guide you on your project. Sip some wine, exchange patterns and tips, and make some friends!
This event is open to all ages, but you must be 21+ to partake in any alcohol. It's recommended to BYOB (BYOW?) or bring a cash donation.
If you'd like access to our sewing machines, crochet tools, and community fabric it'd be a good idea to get a membership (https://rootaccess.space/membership/).
Root Access is a place for hackers, makers, artists, and all the nerds in between. This is our monthly public meeting to introduce friends to the space, catch up, and plan out cool events. It's also a great chance to ask questions of the folks who run the day-to-day operations of the hackerspace.
These meetings are open to the public, and we encourage anyone interested in joining us to attend and catch a glimpse of the community!
