TheHackerspace (Thessaloniki’s Hackerspace) is here!

We announce that at 7.00 pm on Thursday 30/6 we organize a kick-off event for the presentation of TheHackerspace at the Art Cafe “Kokini Klosti Demeni” which is the permanent meeting place at 32 Nicosia Street, Kalamaria, Thessaloniki. Come to get to know us, to see you and share ideas!

The TheHackerspace is an open laboratory for research, collaboration, creativity and learning. But above all, it is a vibrant community of people with ideas and concepts stemming from the philosophy of Free Software / Open Hardware. The idea for the project was started a few months ago by people who love Hacking, both software and hardware, and soon was put into practice with passion and desire to contribute to the community.

Our moto is “Love to hack embedded & operating systems!“.

Happy Hacking,

Dear Readers and Friends of Free Software,

On 5/30/11 (Sunday) there was the fifth seminar, thus completing the circle of free seminars on the ARDUINO open source electronic platform. Specifically, at the fifth seminar I presented my thesis whose subject is the following:

Network implementation of wireless radio communication between two embedded nodes (identification node ​​and control node) for the remote control of devices via digital identification and recognition of physical objects using the Arduino platform.

I feel I must express a very big thank you to the Association of Greek Users and Friends of FS / OSS, especially the living people behind it who are perfectly respectable and cooperative personalities, open minded and with a progressive dynamic potential, giving me the opportunity through this cycle of free workshops to distribute freely my knowledge and my experience on the world of Embedded Systems.
