This Week at Denhac (July 8 – 14)

Sorry for the lack of updates! Looks like there’s a lot going on at the space in the days to come! On to the good stuff…

Monday, July 8: Open. Is there anything you’d like to see on this day? Generally Mondays are pretty empty and there’s definitely room for another class, meet-up or other activity. Any ideas?

Tuesday, July 9, 8 p.m.: LockSport. Our monthly gathering of lock enthusiasts led by the infamous Legion. Never picked a lock and afraid to try? If I can do it, you can too! RSVP on Meet Up.

Tuesday, July 9, 8 p.m.: Weekly Open House. RSVP on Meet Up.

Wednesday, July 10, 6 p.m.: LPFM Admin Meeting via Google Hangout. This is for those of you interested in what it takes to get an LPFM license – specifically FCC rules and regulations. To get in on the action send a request to contact (at) denhac (dot) org. Be sure to include your gmail address in the request.

Wednesday, July 10, 7 p.m.: LPFM Engineering Team Meeting. This is the weekly meeting for the team responsible for the technical logistics of applying for and eventually maintaining the LPFM community radio station. RSVP on Meet Up.

Thursday, July 11, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Work From Denhac Day.  Do you work from home and you’re getting tired of sitting at home talking to your cat? Then this is perfect for you! Come hang out with fellow geeks while you get stuff done. Even if you just have nothing better to do you can come just annoy the people who are working… They love it! Members should be around all day so this is also a perfect time for any non-members to come check out the space and see what we’re all about. We love n00bs. RSVP on Meet Up.

Thursday, July 11, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.: LPFM Content Team Meeting. This is the weekly meeting for the team that makes content and programming decisions and also creates content for the LPFM community radio station. RSVP on Meet Up. 

Friday, July 12, 8 p.m.: GAME NIGHT! This is the newest regular meeting at your favorite hackerspace! The grill is on stand-by for your solid food intake needs, there’s guaranteed to be a poker game going on all night, an array of other games available to play and a plethora of geeky, like-minded people to play them with. There’s even a rumor the space has Cards Against Humanity which I’ve been told is sick, twisted and hilarious – just like us! RSVP on Meet Up.

Saturday, July 13, 12 p.m. to ???: Open House and BBQ. Come say hi, work on a project, eat some food. Everyone is welcome!

Saturday, July 13, 2 p.m.: Intro to the Universe. What’s the deal with the Universe? What do scientists know about topics from the Big Bang and Inflation to Dark Matter and Dark Energy? Ever wonder what the deal with the 4 Universal forces is and what happens when they merge? What is the Cosmic Microwave Background and why is that important? What about the Multi-verse? Why hasn’t the Large Hadron Collider destroyed Earth or why did people think that was a big deal? If you are curious about any of these awesome topics (or more), then please join us this Saturday! RSVP on Meet Up.

Saturday, July 13, 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.: LPFM All Hands Meeting. This is for all members of the LPFM teams – Engineering, Content and Admin.

Sunday, July 14, 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m: Kids Coder Dojo. The Kids Coder Dojo at Denhac is a weekly computer programming class designed for elementary through high school-aged kids. Students will begin by using a free and open source visual programming language called Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/, available on Windows, MacOSX and Linux), and will be able to move on to more advanced languages as they progress at their own pace.

Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian (though guardians are encouraged to attend for all ages). Attendees should bring a laptop or netbook for each student they bring if they can (and you are encouraged to bring extras if possible for those without access to a computer).  RSVP on Meet Up.

Denhac is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of technology, art, DIY, and craft-related classes for all ages, and survives on donations and membership dues.  As with (almost) all Denhac classes, attendance is free of charge and membership is not required. Donations are strongly encouraged.

Come check us out! We’d love to meet you!
