This is the first such event on Vancouver Island and we hope to welcome you to Makerspace Nanaimo where we will have space, desks, chairs, bandwidth and power - all that we really need aside from you.

At last nights MakerSpace Nanaimo 'Smalltalk night' we showed off the Raspberry Pi2 running the latest Scratch and also hooked up a Kinect; yes, you can bounce around like a maniac in front of a camera and control Scratch.
