091 Labs has moved!

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!

Pizza, Python, Posters, LANs and user groups.

WARNING: This might be a bit of a long post. Some parts of it have been waiting a while because blogging is the devil.

First off, we’d like to thank our friends at Four Star Pizza. We had our AGM (minutes here!) back at the end of November and they gave us a few pizzas for it. Now that Christmas is over and we’re well into the new year we figure that people have enough money again to be spending on random stuff… like pizza.
