Hackerspace Charlotte is a non-profit organization where people with common interests, usually in computers, technology, or digital/electronic art can meet, socialize, and collaborate. HSC can be viewed as a kind of open community lab incorporating elements of a machine shop, workshop, classroom, and studio where all kinds of makers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make cool things. We have members from a wide range of backgrounds - including engineering, information security, interdisciplinary art, computer science, music, woodworking, philosophy, and corporate management.
