Barcamp Blackpool and hackspaces

Attending: Tony, Les, Elizabeth, Keiran, Joe and Mike.

We were closed last week for Barcamp Blackpool, held at the Norbreck castle hotel. This was the most popular #bcblackpool to date.

 Ben Nuttall gives a full description here.

There were numerous interesting stalls in the main hall, including  hackspaces from around the country  demonstrating their capabilities.

 Last year, some of our members discussed the possibility of forming a hackspace, but eventually compromised to include hacking at the LUG meeting on Arduinos, Raspberry Pi’s, LED boards and anything else the turned up.
This basically gave use our own private hackspace.

With the prominence of hackspaces showing at #bcblackpool, we have again reopened the discussion about starting a Blackpool hackspace…………… watch this space?
