What is hacking?
It is hard to write a simple definition of something as varied as hacking, but I think what these activities have in common is playfulness, cleverness, and exploration. Thus, hacking means exploring the limits of what is possible, in a spirit of playful cleverness. Activities that display playful cleverness have “hack value”.
– Richard Stallman - “On Hacking”
What is Hackerspace Istanbul?
Hackerspace Istanbul (est. December 2017) is a workplace to have fun with the technical facilities gathered together by the contributers and a social environment to work together and creating events; for the people, who are interested in computers, electronics, technology, Internet, DIY and such kind of subjects.
Is the place open?
Unfortunately, we had to shutdown the place physically on October 2018 due to our financial issues. But we still spend effort to reorganize hs.ist as a physical space under Free Software Association in Turkey.
