*** UPDATE ** This event has been canceled. Sorry everyone. We’ll be having Open Hack night instead.
Interested in getting started with Git? Curious about what’s so great about this DVCS stuff? Have no idea was DVCS is? Join us for an awesome night of Git and GitHub and get bootstrapped. Jared from GitHub (@ShepBook) will be presenting and will be hanging around to answer your questions!
We recently moved into a 1250 square foot facility and are in the process of renovating it to suit our needs. The space is located at:
6410 Landay Ave
Baltimore, MD 21237
The floors were looking pretty bad when we moved in, so we gave them a vigorous cleansing using a floor buffer and a power washer. The floors still were not up to par, so we painted the floors using acrylic floor paint and then added paint flakes to really kick it up a notch.
We need a place to work, so we built a few work benches. 40 2×4′s, 2 sheets of plywood and 2 sheets of laminate was just the right amount of wood to build 6 benches which are 32″ high x 30″ deep x 48″ long.
As you can see in the background, we have also moved much of our stuff into the space. That’s not all…We have really been hard at work in making this space feel like a warm and welcoming place to hang out and learn new skills. Paul King gave the place a slightly more social feel by adding a little graffiti to the newly renovated office wall.
Maybe that should be E=I*R but does it really matter? Google ‘Ohms Law Chart’ and you mostly find V=I*R as examples. Besides, it’s only paint so we can fix that! We plan to add a lot more electronics-related graffiti to the wall. I bet that Ohms law triangle will get used more often that people think…
Got junk? Need more? Come see us at the 3rd Annual Techno-Swap-Fest! The HaHas have reserved 4 tables which will be chocked full of recent acquisitions including bulk wire spools, test equipment, electronics part grab bags (only $2!), connectors, military and government surplus, heat shrink tubing, wire wrap equipment, and other indescribable stuff you simply must have.
This event is like a geek paradise. The HaHas acquired some awesome stuff in the prior two years and this year’s looks to be shaping up to be awesome as well.
