Nederlandse Tekst

Op Zaterdag 31 Maart zal er bij Pixelbar een open dag gehouden worden. Natuurlijk is Pixelbar niet de enige hackerspace die een open dag houdt! Bijna alle Nederlandse hackerspaces doen mee. Je kunt hier dus ook gerust eens een kijkje nemen.

Vanaf 11:00 tot op zijn minst 17:00 zijn we open. We proberen wat projecten te laten zien, en we hebben natuurlijk plaats genoeg om zelf ook eens de soldeerbout ter hande te nemen. Programmeer je liever? geen probleem! we hebben WiFi. Als je aan een eigen project wilt werken is dat natuurlijk ook mogelijk.

S’avonds zullen er mogelijk ook nog een aantal deelnemers in de hackerspace zijn. Mocht je het dus niet redden om voor 17:00 langs te komen, geen probleem!. Kijk gewoon even op onze website naar de spacestate om te zien of we nog open zijn.

Inschrijven is niet nodig, val gewoon binnen. We zijn te vinden in de Keilewerf.

Mocht je meer informatie willen, of een andere hackerspace willen bezoeken. Neem dan zeker een kijkje op de Nederlandse hackerspaces site.

Als je er heel veel zin in hebt, en zelfs mee wilt helpen, dan is dat natuurlijk ook mogelijk! schrijf je in dat geval even in op de Pixelbar Wiki ( Spacenet account required ).

HackerHotel 2018
( 16 Februari - 18 Februari )

After 2 previous editions, HackerHotel will be back again in 2018. This year Pixelbar will join this awesome hacking/security conference with around 10 participants.

HackerHotel is an event which not only hosts technical and informational talks, but there will also be some space to hack around a bit with led panels, arduino’s, lockpinging, soldering, programming,… you name it.

One of our members (Miep) is even having a talk about decryption of ssl traffic. You could say, Pixelbar is surely to be found at the event!

Will we see you there? We’ll bring stickers!

Hacky Newyear

We want to wish everyone a very hacky newyear!

This year will be all about hacking, exploring and creating new stuff! Do you want to find out more about that really old ZX Spectrum or do you really want to learn Rust, C#, NodeJS or any other programming language ? That’s what we’re about! We really support learning new things! And what better time to start hacking then with the beginning of a new year!

Do we see you around this year ? We’re looking forward to it!

CryptoParty at Worm (12/12)

Nowadays everyone is concerned about their privacy, right?

Arguing that you don’t care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say

– Edward Snowden

Well, we’d like to think so. Therefor we’re going to take matters into our own hands during this awesome CryptoParty! Learn, talk and inspire each other how to be better.

At a CryptoParty you can learn how to encrypt your emails and messages, how to browse anonymously and ask all the questions you have about privacy and security. Although talking about security is an option, a CryptoParty makes much more sense if you can install some security tools and learn how to use them, so bring a laptop or a smartphone to the event!

The event is free and open for everyone, especially for those without prior knowledge of cybersecurity. As we need to know how many people will join, we ask you to please sign up here, using any nickname you like.

At 19:00 our friend Marie will take the lead and help everyone be more secure with a group of volunteers.

This event is hosted at Worm by Hacktalk and Rotterdam Security Labs.

Happy Sint Pannekoek!

Happy Sint Pannekoek everybody! We’re celebrating this very nice tradition at the space today starting at 19:00, with lots and lots of pancakes and friends! Please let us know if you’d like to join on to our Slack or IRC.

Wait. You’ve never heard of Sint Pannekoek before? Well, it’s a very old Rotterdam tradition and we’d like to celebrate it by basically eating lots of pancakes. Yep. It’s the best tradition there is. And nobody will ever change our tradition.


PS: help baking pancakes is very welcome!
