Hacking & Developer Workshop at CT Hackerspace now on Second Saturdays

Computer and Developer Workshop at CTH

Come join us once a month at NOW ON THE SECOND SATURDAYS AT 4PM – A more convenient time per member’s request! This is a general class for learning all aspects of how to do web publishing for all skill levels.

If you’re totally new to programming, we can guide you through the basics and introduce you to a community of other people all working to improve their own skills in a supportive environment. And if you’re an experienced developer already, think of this as your chance to get some cool work done, or a chance to pick up a new technical skill!

Our instructor Joshua is excited to talk to everyone on what new directions this workshop can journey and hopes for all your input. For more information, please feel free to contact his email: tenner.joshua@gmail.com.

The class will be run at CT Hackerspace’s new computer Lab. Directions to CT Hackerspace can be found at : www.cthackerspace.com/findus/

Help “Save Our CNC” – It’s Back!

Recent changes have put the future of our 4′ x 8′ CNC Machine on notice! One of our members last year had become the 100% CNC investor for CT Hackerspace CNC, and had purchased the unit and kept in on site with an agreement of permanent loan. Unfortunately, circumstances have changed and the owner is moving away. We again are in a position to return to fundraising. We DO have the funds already given in the past but we are still falling short of the total.

YOU can help carve out a permanent home for our 4’x8′ CNC Machine before it goes! Your immediate action can change this outcome.

An agreement has been made that the hackerspace can buy back the machine permanently.. If our users and supporters feel strong enough to make this permanent purchase for the space, now is the time. Replacement machinery would go for at least twice as much as well as coordinating efforts to build a new one from scratch. Keeping this unit is a far more attractive option – if the community acts now!

Donate now via Paypal with comment “CNC fund”, or contact Jason Wells (CTH Treasurer) at cthackerspace.treasurer AT gmail.com to renew your pledge for helping.
