Mountain View, CA, hackerspace Hacker Dojo needs help with facility improvements! Apparently code violations are threatening their ability to offer classes and they’re turning to the crowd to help them out.
We are currently not allowed in more than half of the space we pay rent on, not permitted to hold large classes, and not permitted to hold many classes at once. This is due to restrictions placed by the city of Mountain View on the Hacker Dojo. We are looking to lift these restrictions by updating the building, and to create some amazing new resources for our community such as a dedicated event space and makerspace/design studio.
If you want to help out, they’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to help with the cost of renovations. They’ve passed their original funding goal and are now looking at expanding their original renovation plans to make the facility even more useful to the community.
