Hackerspaces Village

Within the last years, we’ve seen hackerspaces poping up like mushrooms all across the world at an incredible rate.
Hackerspaces have a very positive impact on the way hackers and computer scientists develop themselves. Some incredible projects were born at hackerspaces like cracking MD5 certificates, the cold-boot attack, the Warzone project, hardware hacking, thinkering and much more.

Attendees will get an inside look in hackerspaces, their community, projects and even get some handsome hardware hacking. In the hackerspaces/hardware village you will find representatives from Hackerspace Brussel, Revspace, Randomdata, Metalab ,/tmp/lab and Hack42 showing their projects and giving light presentations. Even soldering will be an option and build something yourself.

Participating Spaces

- Random Data (Utrecht)
- Revelation Space (Den Haag)
- Hack42 (Arnhem)
- Hackerspace Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
- /tmp/lab (France)
