Welcome to the South Side Hackerspace: Chicago wiki page! Our wiki acts as a resource to the public and members alike. Please take a look around and let us know if you have any questions!

Our Mission

    Establish and maintain a community space wherein the Hackerspace’s Members may gather, work on projects, collaborate, and share knowledge;
    Foster a network for innovative thinking, education, and creative endeavors in our local community and the hacker community at large.

Who we are

We are a group of makers and hackers who have started a hackerspace on the south side of Chicago (in Bridgeport). We are seeking hackers, tinkerers, hobbyists, crafters, artists and doers to help us create a social, educational and collaborative space for ourselves and the community. You can learn more about hackerspaces on and Wikipedia. If you have questions about us in particular, check our FAQ.

We're currently open for hacking! If you're interested, feel free to stop by our regular general body meetings, every Wednesday at 7:30PM!

We are currently located at Bubbly Dynamics, 1048 W 37th St, Unit #105, Chicago, IL 60609.
