Hackers on a Train Workshop Tour 2012

  • Mitch Altman, Jimmie Rodgers, and maybe others will be visiting Vancouver at the tail end of the North American hackerspace tour.  They are bringing a crapload of kits with them, and are hosting a kit building workshop at VHS.  Kits will be for sale on a first-come-first-serve basis, with prices ranging from $10 to $35.  See the kits section on the HoaT page for a list of what they will be bringing – notable favorites include the TV-B-Gone and Atari Punk Console.
  • We will have limited space available for the kit workshop, please RSVP with Eventbrite to confirm your spot.
  • Learn more about Mitch Altman from his Reddit AMA or from his Wikipedia page

Kit building workshop has been derailed by the Canada Border Services Agency
