57North is a hacker collective with a shared space located in Aberdeen, Scotland. We meet regularly to share knowledge, hack on projects together, and build community. If you're interested in joining 57North, come to some of our public meetings or join the 57North mailing list.
57North (previously Hackerdeen) was born from the efforts of a group of like-minded people in Aberdeen. Following two in-person meetings at the University of Aberdeen we got our own space to move into and have grown rapidly ever since. We have a range of electronics and computing tools available to our members that have been donated or loaned to us by members and local organisations.
Our current home is office space located on the third floor of 35a Union Street next to the Premier shop.
Of course there would not be a hacklab were it not for our members. Our membership spans many technical fields with those that have knowledge and experience and also those that wish to learn. The hacklab exists for everyone that would like to use it.
For important announcements, you can subscribe to our announcements mailing list using the form in the footer of this page.
To engage in hacklab discussions you can subscribe to the discussion mailing list via the web interface. To send a message to the discussion mailing list, address an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details, see our mailing list pages on the wiki.
When not in the space, the online meeting place is #57N on irc.freenode.net. For more details, see our IRC pages on the wiki.
Our bills are paid primarily through the collection of membership fees from our members which are currently £20pcm. For more casual users of the space, we do also allow people to use the space under the supervision of a member and donations are appreciated. For casual users there is a suggested minimum donation of £5 per day. If you just want to hang around to get a feel for the space, we're not going to pressure you for a donation, so don't let that stop you coming along.
