My 8-year-old son and I have had a terrific time making and learning at Noisebridge and these improvements will only, well, improve what's already an inspiring and educational community autonomous zone!
Established in 2007, Noisebridge has been a welcoming hacker workspace in the Mission District of San Francisco for both the local and national hacker community, as well as hosting hackers from all around the world. Our philosophy is simple: Be excellent to each other.

From basic soldering to advanced programming classes, many thousands of people have utilized and benefited from the open-door policy Noisebridge maintains. But that takes money.
