We have 8000 square feet of space perfect for artists, designers, engineers, [[WhatIsAHacker|makers & hackers]], fabbers, scientists, musicians, seminars and workshops, coworking, and a ton of other stuff.

What is ATX Hackerspace?

We are a community of people who love to learn and make things, as well as a collaborative industrial workshop. We are located at 9701 Dessau Rd, Suite #304, Austin TX 78754.

We have 8000 square feet of space perfect for artists, designers, engineers, makers & hackers, fabbers, scientists, musicians, seminars and workshops, coworking, and a ton of other stuff. Anything that needs a space, involves loud equipment, messy equipment (woodworking, soldering/welding, painting), power equipment (120V, 240V, and 3-phase power available), or ventilation for fumes (etching, spray painting, varnish, etc).

More importantly, we have an established community that's growing. There are lots of different groups in Austin, and friends meeting at coffee shops, bars, and homes. If we combine skills, knowledge, ideas, tools, and materials, just imagine the massive projects that could be undertaken! Even if you're not into any of this, but want to learn, there will be some very smart and fun people around to help teach.

We're hackers (defined here) which means we create things and put them together in new and innovative ways. ATX Hackerspace is dedicated to promote and encourage technical, scientific, and artistic skills through projects, collaboration, and education by all legal means.
