I don't know how the volunteers at Hacker Dojo manage to do any outreach at all. Social decorum aside, where do you find the time? Keep up the good work!

Hacker Dojo is the world's largest hackerspace. (Not the bad kind of hacking; we don't write viruses or read your email.) We are a member-supported non-profit in the heart of Silicon Valley that operates a "community center for nerds". We're open 24/7, have crazy-fast Internet and plenty of places to sit. And a kitchen. And a pool table. And a giant koosh hanging from the ceiling. Untold companies, books, and open source projects have been launched here - come by for a tour! Membership is only $100/mo!

Hacker Dojo is an awesome communal maker space in the heart of Silicon Valley. The Dojo has lots of great resources for whatever project you're working on. Members are heavily computer science-oriented, but there are tools, books, and equipments for all kinds of makers. You can relax or work in one of the many rooms available. And most organized activities are open to all. Guests are welcome to drop in for free (although donations are appreciated). Memberships are also available for $100/month, although this is pretty steep unless you are working from here at least part-time. Definitely check it out!

Great place to study or hangout with friends. It is a shared workspace with several various sized rooms. Machinery, such as 3D printers, may also be shared. Membership is not required to use the space, but it is recommended. Guests may only stay until 10 PM unless they are with a member. Events may be held with membership.

They should call this place "business dojo". Hacker dojo isn't what it used to be since the town and the businesses stepped in. it is now becoming compramised by special intrest groups.

I was just sitting quietly coding away, and I was a member and I wanted a cheaper price, so I applied for "Hacker Dojo Hardship Membership for Students". I applied and I got an email from "David Casey " after I said that I am in high school, he asked me how old I am. I told him that I am 16 by email. He said that I have to be 18 to go to the Hacker Dojo. I emailed him back saying "There is nothing in the rules on the Wiki OR the website that say I have to be 18 (in fact the rules said you had to be 13)". He most likely didn't check but what he did check is that I am already a member of the Hacker Dojo and he suspended that account. (so my RFID card stopped working and my hacker dojo email). He wrote back saying "If you want to come to the Hacker Dojo you must come with a parent" WHY THE F*CK IS THAT NOT IN THE RULES... HACKER DOJO IS A PIECE OF SH*T... I AM NOW A MEMBER OF NOISEBRIDGE INSTEAD. UPDATE: I contacted the owner of the Dojo and turns out David Casey was right, however at that time the rules stated that you have to be 13.

This is a communal working space for creative people. I don't really know how else to describe it. It looks like the majority of the users are software developers, but I was also told there are photographers, web designers, businessman, etc. There's a suggested donation of $10 to visit and work at the area. Monthly membership is $100 and it comes with plenty of benefits like faster internet connection, access to workshops and happy hours, 24 hours access (visitors need to leave by 10 PM) and many more. It's a good alternative for those that need a change in workshop, or just to meet other creative people with same (or different?) interest. I've visited the facility twice for a workshop and office hour, and it looks like I will be coming back more often for other reasons.

If you are an entrepreneur or hacker looking for inspiration, there's no better place in the world to be! That's right, this is where they all hangout and increasingly they are coming from all over the world. Here's a few why's: it's a non-profit member run organization with the principle that there are no rooms off limit for members; you have an amazing group of friendly, smart motivated people that you can hang out and possibly collaborate with, and the ambience simply is exemplary. There's a huge lounge with a pool table and ping-pong where we have our Friday night Happy Hour, there are comfortable couches everywhere, a kitchen with coffee - and sometimes free food left over from the numerous events hosted here everyday. About the events - even when there's an admission fee for an event, Dojo members get in for free. And members can also host their own events for free! And coming back to what the Dojo is about - there plenty of room for you to do your thing: work on your mobile app, collaborate with your team on site or globally through the high speed broadband, work with the "hardware stuff" building robots and other electronic gizmos, gaming, study sessions, hackathons, business meetings ... and I suspect even dates! Most importantly it's an inclusive group that doesn't want a piece of you - just a nominal monthly fee. And if you can't afford even the $100, you are still welcome to do everything between 8 am and 10 pm seven days a week as a guest. And if all that is still not good enough for you, participate in the governance of the Dojo and help make the change for the better - as I said, Hacker Dojo is run by its members. Get your mojo back at the Dojo!
