Welcome onboard!

Getting started

While we're sure your very keen to get down to the space and start tinkering/hacking please take some time to familiarize yourself with our rules and policies. Most of the information you need to know is on this Wiki and can be found easy enough or with a search.

Getting to know you

No doubt you will have already familiarised yourself with the members area on our website but if you haven't done so already please add a Gravatar to your member profile which can be done in the account area. We then can see what you look like and be able to identify you at the space.

We'd also love it if you added yourself to this wiki by making your own page where you can tell us a bit about yourself including current projects and skills you'd like to share. Log in using your members area username and password, then click your name at the top of the wiki and then "Edit with form"

These are our regular opening times. More details can be found here.

Some subgroups organise regular meetings at the space in addition to the regular opening times. See our calendar above for details.

How to talk to us

The best way to talk to us is via the Mailing list, it's good for talking about projects, asking for help. Or organising an ad-hoc opening of the space. Important announcements go out to this list, so we recommend you subscribe.

A significant portion of us hang out on IRC a lot, it's good for much the same sort of banter. You might also want to check out smib the IRC bot.
