We’re still working on how to concisely describe what a hackerspace is and what we’re all about. This is our working copy, probably subject to extensive revision as we get this going.
East Bay Hackers is non-profit organization that provides a collaborative space that brings together hackers, artists, programmers, students, entrepreneurs and other creative thinkers in Contra Costa County. We use the term “hacker” in the original, positive sense of the word to describe someone who likes to explore how things work.
East Bay Hackers’ mission is to bring people together around the ingredients for innovation. We provide space, Internet connectivity, tools, informal technical training, and a stimulating social environment for hackers.
East Bay Hackers is hackerspace; a center for innovation. It is a collaborative blend of community center, business incubator, coworking and tech space rolled into one creative place for innovation and design. We are different from other innovation centers that are based on a profit-driven commercial model.
