Winter is coming (and that’s a good thing)

Mark

Haha, meme joke. The blog and the hackerspace have had both enjoyed less life than Io, the first moon of Jupiter, in the past few months. Oh sure, we’ve had a clade of successful workshops, a packed Ignite event, major redecoration, a freaking awesome new logo, and some great new members, but if you walk into the hackerspace at an arbitrary point in time you’d have found hardly anything but a handful of happy hackers happily hacking away at their Facebook pages, or a video game.

But rule of thumb, it’s been quiet, and the blog has sadly reflected this. The Twitter account is shared between several people, and is trivial to update, as is our Facebook page. But you know what, winter is coming and with it a spike in activity at the hackerspace, and it behoves me to talk about the hackerspace and winter activities long-form. “So what,” you might ask, “is coming up this winter?”

Foremost, a change to our Tuesday open nights: Learning nights (and also a chance for some Photoshop fun). The idea is for a few people to get together on Tuesday’s, pick a topic, and learn about it. Or learn about learning-study methods, research sources and filtering, phrasing search terms. The atmosphere is intended to be informal. Come along, dust off your brain, and use it in good company for a few hours.

Also, alcohol.

Learning Nights

Learning Nights start next week, Tuesday October 1.

Also coming to the hackerspace are more workshops: A rehash of the above Bash workshop with a greater focus on Linux, Adobe Photoshop and digital image editing, and LaTeX, a programming language for document preparation. My personal goal is one workshop per month, and if anyone else wants to run a workshop is absolutely welcome to contact us.

Our next Ignite event will be on Wednesday October 30, and the annual 091 Labs Hallowe’en party on the next day Wednesday October 31

Looking further afield, the 091 Labs website will be getting a complete overhaul to match the new logo and its attendant colour scheme. I have no timeframe for this beyond a vague “next few months”.

091 Labs has moved!

Padraic

If you have tried to visit 091 Labs over the last days, you may have noticed an eerie quiet to the place and not a soul to be seen…

That’s because we’re in the process of moving 091 Labs into it’s new location! =D

Our new address is “6 Commerce House, Flood Street, Galway”.


View Larger Map

We’ll go into more detail about it and our future plans over the next few weeks but suffice to say that it’s awesome and you should come visit us on Open Tuesdays from 7pm =)

All future events should be considered as being on in the Flood Street space and for anyone who has been using our Lo-Lo app to find out if the Labs is open, it should be operational again next week!
