Busy month ahead
Its proving to be a busy time of the year on the domestic hackerspace scene. Cork moved into their new home in July, Limerick are actively recruiting new members and TOG in Dublin have completed a 2 month refurbishment of their new home on Chancery Lane (before, during and after videos here). August sees the first annual Irish Hackerspace Week take place August 14th-22nd. Events and workshops are being organised by each location to promote hackerspaces throughout the country. We are busy finalising details of our workshops, events and talks which will be announced next Monday.
On the local Galway front things are continuing apace. NUIG plays host to this years International BlogTalk 2010 Conference on August 25th-26th. The organisers have pulled together another great lineup of speakers with the full schedule here. Tickets for the event are still available for those interested in attending. 091 Labs is delighted to host Galways first IGNITE event in Galway on September 10th. There are still slots available for speakers and sponsors. BizCamp Galway takes place on September 11th in NUIG so it promises to be a very special weekend. In closing we would like to thank the Ubuntu Ireland team for sending on desktop and server disks for our space which arrived in time for our build your own pc workshops!
