The Last HOPE (2008): "Hacker Space Design Patterns" (DVD)
Friday, July 18, 2008: 6:00 pm (Turing): How do you get a hacker space started? How do you manage it once you have a space? This talk presents wisdom collected over a decade of building sustainable hacker spaces in Germany. Through "design patterns," Jens Ohlig will cover the essentials of assembling an initial group, finding the perfect location, and managing the community. Earlier versions of this talk have inspired the creation of the U.S. hacker spaces NYCResistor and HacDC. This version will inspire and help you create a hacker space where you live!
