More info about the workshops

Hardware hacking

Bring your soldering irons, components and insights! Because we will get busy on all kinds of hardware again. Microcontrollers, retro-gear and lasercutters.

LAOS laser-cutter project

Also present will be the LAOS project. They have been developing (open design) hardware and software to control basically any random type of laser-cutter. The open design entails it will be possible to develop open-source drivers for linux or even windows. This makes it possible to use software of your choice (eg. inkscape) instead of coreldraw or any of the other proprietary and very crappy vendor software.

During this winter event, the team from LAOS will be present with various controller boards and cutters, to further develop the software both on the controller board as well as on the controlling computer.

Saturday from 12:00 till 00:00 (and possibly also on sunday).

Retro fixing and breaking

There will be a bunch of retro hardware (game consoles and old home computers), part of which is probably still good to go after a little expert TLC and part of which is beyond repair and ready to be harvested and re-used. The fixed gear shall go back to the awesome retro collection, what will happen with the discarded components? Let's find something creative!

GSM hacking

Enough fun things to do with GSM. See the GSM hacking subpage for more information.

By car

Use the satnav, it works as expected.

Wanna carpool ?

Where do I park

There's plenty of space around the building, most of it private road, parking places or concrete, so there should be no need for 4x4's this year.


All rooms have heating in the floors, are newly built, and should be plenty cozy for everyone.

You need to bring your own sleeping bag / pillow. (also, we don't have enough toothbrushes for everyone)
