What we're about

We are Noisebridge. Noisebridge is a hackerspace for technical-creative projects, doocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. Come and visit our space a 5,200 square-foot area located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share.

Noisebridge is growing, and we need a bigger space! We plan to leave our current location by August 2019. It’s all very exciting, but 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 for fundraising help. You can donate at patreon.com/noisebridge, and visit the space at 2169 Mission Street.

Whiteboarding & Algorithms Workshop - Wednesday Edition (self-directed, drop-in)

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, and will be self-organized / self-directed!! ^_^ All experience levels are welcome. (Arrive any time between the start & finish times, at your own convenience. And leave whenever you want. There's no strict start & end time.) (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. ~~~~~~~~~~ My Personal Opinion About Whiteboarding Interviews: https://twitter.com/ThePracticalDev/status/716997357624287232/photo/1 https://twitter.com/mirror2mask/status/790779116395962368 https://medium.freecodecamp.org/why-is-hiring-broken-it-starts-at-the-whiteboard-34b088e5a5db 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. ~~~~~~~~~~ List Of Resources: ~~~~~~~~~~ https://gitlab.com/BerniceChua/Whiteboarding_And_Algorithms_Workshop_-_Wednesday_Edition#whiteboarding-and-algorithms-workshop-wednesday-edition ~~~~~~~~~~ If you want more community-oriented events and other cool stuff like this, please donate to Noisebridge: https://donate.noisebridge.net/projects/Forever_Home_t8dKTgrb2p or https://www.patreon.com/noisebridge ~~~~~~~~~ Join the community! ^_^ https://www.discord.gg/JnfB58Z

Building the Decentralized Internet


Meet Althea co-founders Justin Kilpatrick and Deborah Simpier. They'll discuss the technical and on-ground experience of an Althea decentralized ISP. We'll have a demo of the tech in action and take your questions in an open discussion about all things networking, cryptocurrency in the real world, and decentralized internet infrastructure. About Althea - Althea is a system that lets routers pay each other for bandwidth. This allows people to set up decentralized ISPs in their communities. In an Althea network, instead of one ISP at the top collecting monthly payments, many different people can earn money by expanding and strengthening the network https://althea.org
