Welcome to HacDC. We are a hacker space located in Washington, DC. HacDC members improve the world by creatively rethinking technology. We break, build, and occasionally abuse technology in the pursuit of greater knowledge about how it works and repurposing it to build new things. Our shop is located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC.

If you're new here, you should start by looking at our public web site at hacdc.org. Our Wiki is mostly for internal organization, but you're welcome to look through to get a sense of what we work on (and consider joining yourself!). We invite you to subscribe to our Blabber public discussion mailing list.

Project Tracker

An experimental Project Tracker (aka. ToDo List) has been set up at http://mirage335.dyndns.org/hacdcprojects using web2project.

Curious guests and members looking to pitch in should consult this page for an overview of ongoing HacDC projects and progress.
