What we're about

We are Noisebridge. Noisebridge is a hackerspace for technical and creative projects, do-ocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. Come and visit our space, a 5,000+ square-foot area located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share.

Noisebridge has MOVED to 272 Capp Street, directly behind the old space, still between 17th and 18th streets in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood! It’s all very exciting, and we need your support to pull it off! Join Noisebridge in building the largest non profit hacker community in San Francisco. Our biggest needs are recurring donations and volunteer hours to work on buildout, setting up the electronics room, wood shop, machine shop, and so on. You can donate at patreon.com/noisebridge, and visit the space at 272 Capp Street during our open hours and events, for a tour or to work on your own projects!

There are a lot of chess players among the Noisebridge Hackers, so they decided to make a meeting of it. Come over on Friday nights to test your wit!

All skill levels welcome :)

***ONLINE*** Whiteboarding & Algorithms Workshop - Weekend Edition

Because jobhunting and preparing for job interviews by yourself sucks.

It's better to do it with a community! Come to Noisebridge and practice whiteboarding, algorithms, and other interviewing techniques together with others!! =D (This is also a support group for job-hunters.)

This event will be in the Hackitorium, but will be at Church classroom if Audiochurch is happening, and will be hosted by Bernice & by Ishan. This version will be a more structured version of the Wednesday version!! ^_^

All experience levels are welcome.

(For newcomers, this is how you get in: to go inside, please ring the doorbell at the gate, then go to the 3rd floor.)

This workshop was inspired by "Whiteboarding Wednesdays" at Dev Bootcamp.

But unfortunately, this is the world that we live in.

My personal tips to get good at interviews:
There are actually 2 different skills being tested in interviews, especially whiteboarding interviews. The first skill is public speaking / communication skills, and the second skill is technical proficiency. Both of these skills need to be practiced in tandem, and are equally important.

These are what you need to do:
1) Practice public speaking / communication skills
- Get used to speaking in front of others and narrating your thoughts. Going to whiteboaring interview practice gets you used to talking in front of other people, so instead of associating the emotions of nervousness and anxiousness with public speaking, you associate public speaking with familiarity.

2) Know your stuff
- Be very comfortable and familiar with your skills, because it's hard enough to do public speaking, while trying to remember the technical parts.
- Good way to get better at programming is to work on something you want to make, or work on something that you really care about. Example, I love videogames, and I want to make videogames, so that's how I got better at programming.
