Hackerspace Los Angeles (HackerspaceLA) displays and exhibits technology that hopes will spark an individual’s desire to peruse a hobby or learn more about that technology. All our workshops are presented for free and all the technology that is presented is readily available and free to use, acquire, or reproduce. We provide the resources and information where all this technology can be acquired.
We are transitioning from a 470+ online members meetup group to a formal entity. We are working on turning HackerspaceLA into a formal entity operating in the San Fernando Valley that will provide FREE access to knowledge, tools, software, and working spaces.
We are a group of technology enthusiasts building a
#Hackerspace and #Makerspace in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, CA. HackerspaceLA is an advocate for the Open Hardware, Open Source, and STEM/STEAM initiatives.

HackerspaceLA is a project that supports the creative process and personal growth of individuals by providing a safe workshop space where individuals can learn and expand their skills, invent, and build new products in a collaborative environment.
We want to build a community of creative and technological apt individuals to help grow HackerspaceLA into a technology hub for the San Fernando Valley (SFV.) By developing close ties with education, business, and city leaders, we foresee HackerspaceLA becoming the premier exponent of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) in the San Fernando Valley.
