Frequently Asked Questions
DOWN WITH BETAMAX!
VHS provides a physical space where hackers, computer geeks, engineers, artists, crafters, and other creative types can gather to share ideas, equipment, opinions, and beer. We aim to create a sort of 24/7 brain gym, where members can show up and work on personal projects, consult with friends, and learn new tricks. More than just a studio space, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere.
At this point most of our members are hardware and software engineers, wood and metal workers, knitters, sewers, and anyone else with an interest in microcontrollers, beard hats, robotics, electronic music and art, but we welcome anyone with skills to share and/or an interest in learning. If this is you, why aren't you here?
Open nights are every Tuesday at 7pm. They are held at 1715 Cook St. Members/Non-Members/Super-Heroes/All are welcome to our Tuesday meetings. Check the calendar for information on upcoming workshops.
These events may either be open, or may require a fee to cover time/materials.
We are located at 1715 Cook St. Access to the space is from Cook St, and you will have to buzz #104 at the door. Someone will let you in, if we're open.
IRC - many of us also communicate/idle in #VHS on irc.OFTC.net.
Slack - Slack is somewhat similar to IRC, and seems to be taking over much of the chat that used to be common on our IRC channel. Unfortunately you need to be invited by one of the current admins to get access to it - that's slack.com's requirement, not ours. Information on how to do that can be found on the VHS Talk forum.
