SoutHACKton is a subgroup of SoMakeIt focused around hardware and software hacking.
Computer hacking is when someone modifies computer hardware or software in a way that alters the creator's original intent. People who hack computers are known as hackers. Hackers are usually real technology buffs who enjoy learning all they can about computers and how they work. Hackers think that what they do is like an art form. They usually have expert-level skills in one specific program. For most hackers, hacking gives them the opportunity to use their problem-solving skills and a chance to show off their abilities. Most of them do not wish to harm others.

Parts and components
The space does not currently hold much stock of parts, as this is still being decided upon and funding is difficult.
However, for electronics projects, we have a small stock of parts as below.
Integrated Circuit / Semiconductor Components
Input from James Bryant:-
I was European Applications Manager for Analog Devices for almost 30 years and for half of it worked from a
home office/lab. When I retired the company did not want my disorganised piles of components back so I kept 'em.
I've a lot of resistors, capacitors and sensors of various sorts, and various other stuff (including Analog Devices ICs).
