What we’re about
TOG is a hackerspace based in Bluebell in Dublin. It is a shared space where members can have a place to be creative and work on their projects in an environment that is both inspiring and supportive of both new and old technologies. It is also a community of fellow minded hackers and makers with varied events for the public.
We have regular open events for visitors and these evenings are usually free to attend. They include lockpicking, coding, crafting, electronics, brewing, wikipedia editing and others. We hold a regular Open Social evening on about the 3rd Saturday of each month, when we just come in and hang out for the evening. We also collaborate on many external events like Repair Cafe and DublinMaker.
Come and visit. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour of the space. Talk to members and visitors about projects or things you’d like to do. If you like what you see, ask about joining as a full member. Membership gives you 24/7 access to the space and all it's facilities, which includes 3D printers, laser cutter, workshop, classrooms with seating and projectors and a fully kitted out electronics lab. We also have eating and cooking facilities and off-street parking. There is also a great community spirit with ongoing community events.
To join us as a member, get to know us, then feel free to sign up for membership using our online form or ask for more information from any of our members.
Feel free to drop in for any of the listed events, or just drop a mail to email@example.com to find out when we are open for a look around.
Upcoming events (4+)See all
- Electronics NightTog Hackerspace, Dublin 12, D
These are our regular Monday evening electronics nights. Everyone from absolute beginner to experienced is welcome. These evenings are not classes or tutorials, rather a very friendly informal evening.
We have a wide range of people who come. Some are absolute beginners who do not even work or study electronics, but are interested to know more. Others have something that they are already working on. We almost always have some first time visitors and we always give them a tour of the space.
Come in with your Pi, Arduino, or whatever you have. Bring your laptop. Maybe you want to make something, solder, breadboard or use our electronic gear. Maybe you have some vague ideas and just want to get started. Or maybe you’re just curious……if so, it’s fine to come along and just see what others are doing.
If you would like to get even more involved and have the full use of our space, we would be delighted to have you as a full member. Membership brings many benefits.
We are located behind Mr Price and the Bright Lights store on Kylemore Road. We have lots of free parking available.
- Learn Digital Systems Design Using Microcontrollers with Raspberry Pi PicoTog Hackerspace, Dublin 12, D
Join us at Tog to learn about microcontroller design and implementation using the Raspberry Pi Pico from Cornell University by following their Digital Systems Design Using Microcontrollers. The course is perfect for intermediate coders who want to take their skills to the next level.
This event is free to attend. Donations to TOG are welcome.
During this course, we’ll be watching lecture videos together and discussing the content in person. With 28 lectures in total, there’s plenty of material to explore and learn from.
We have lots of free parking and tea, coffee, and snacks available.
Please note that this is a 3rd level university course, so it may not be suitable for absolute beginners. However, if you’re interested in learning and willing to put in the effort, this course could be a great opportunity for you to develop your skills.
To participate in the course, you’ll need to bring your own laptop and Raspberry Pi Pico.
Having done the first 8 lectures, we have decided to continue with the next 4 as per the following schedule;
Monday 11/09/23 7:15 pm – Lecture 9: Review session
Monday 25/09/23 7:15 pm – Lecture 10: Synchronization of Pulse-Coupled Oscillators
Monday 09/10/23 7:15 pm – Lecture 11: Boids, Bees, and Synchronization Bugs
Monday 23/10/23 7:15 pm – Lecture 12: Implementing the Boids algorithm
- Maker Night - Work on 3D projects using laser cutter, 3D Printer at TOGTog Hackerspace, Dublin 12, D
Do you like to make things? Would you like to use 3D software, lasercutter and 3D printing to help you make your idea?
TOG has an open evening to learn how CAD software and 3D fabrication tools can help you make your project.
All you need to take part is your own laptop and some ideas on what you want to make.
This is not a taught class, more like an informal working group of self-directed makers.
We will be happy to help you explore how to use our 3D tools in designing and making your project whether you are a crafter, designer, engineer or hobbyist.
Come and have a look at the tools in our space and get some ideas on how your project can be made.
