New hackerspace in Chicagoland: Workshop 88

Good news for those in Chicagoland! Planning is underway to form Workshop 88, a hackerspace in the west suburbs of Chicago. Here’s your chance to get in on the ground floor!

We’re currently in the planning stage, and we’re looking for interested people in the area to help us get started. We’re holding bi-weekly meetings Mondays at 6:30 until we’re ready to rent some space and move in. The first meeting is this Monday, November 23, at the Boilerhouse Cafe, on the campus of North Central College in Naperville (29 N Loomis St Naperville, IL 60540).

Some of the things we’ll be discussing:

  • Legal structure of the hackerspace
  • Membership structure and guidelines
  • Work that still needs to be done to build out our online presence
  • Current projects

This information is also available on our blog, at Updates and meeting notices will be posted there, as well as on Twitter at For additional information, we have a mailing list at
