Upcoming events (4+)

Linux Meetup

Root Access Hackerspace

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. ;)

Fresno FreeCodeCamp

Soldering Night

Root Access Hackerspace


Soldering is a fundamental skill for any sort of electronics work, and this workshop will teach you how to safely solder components onto a circuit board.

We'll give you a small electronics kit, and you'll solder some LEDs and other components onto a circuit board. When you're done, you'll know how to solder and have a neat blinky electronics toy to take home!

The cost of this workshop is $20.

RSVP-ing on Meetup will not guarantee you a spot in the class! Sign up on our website to reserve your spot.


Sip 'n' Stitch

Root Access Hackerspace

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.
