Short description: Dutch Hackerspaces national open door day


The open door day was a success! A lot of people came by and had a chat.

Stuff what was happening:

  • Epic epoch clock demonstration
  • Automatic roller door demonstration
  • Some playing around with VoIP (including a one-to-one workshop FreeSWITCH, and a different VoIP approach)
  • We've managed to salvage a Commodore 64! (Thanks Zapman!)
  • We've also made it to the local newspaper or DeUitdagingenVanHeerlenseHackers.pdf
  • And one of the most important things: New ideas have come up, and valueable knowledge has been exchanged.

(add here what I might have forgotten)

Things which haven't made it, but will be done another time:

  • Presentation and workshop JavaScript (allthough xopr did a quick glance over JS for Prodigity the day after)
  • Full hands-on FreeSWITCH on Raspberry Pi
  • Game:Jump_Wheel (JavaScript + jump pads)


Most hackerspaces in The Netherlands will open their doors for visitors on the 30th of March.

Also see the Website  (in Dutch)

ACKspace will open their doors for all who are interested in hackerspaces and the projects we are working on.
Various participants will show their projects, interests and ideas along with some workshops and open discussions.

A quick round-up of the topics we will be showing :

We will start @ 10:00 and until at least 17:00. Entrance is (of course) free of charge. Signup is not needed.
0xC0FFEE and Tea is freely available.
