We are Noisebridge. Noisebridge is a hackerspace for technical-creative projects, doocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. Our space is a 5,200 square-foot space located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share. Read more about Noisebridge or watch a short video.

We are committed to providing a safe space to work, learn, and play. Please read and understand our anti-harassment policy and community standards. This is how we expect people to behave when they are at Noisebridge, and you should also expect this standard of behavior from others in the space.

Noisebridge continues to operate entirely through monetary donations from people like you! Please consider contributing to our operating expenses of over $5,000/mo by making a donation.

Come and Create With Us!

Our 5,200 square-foot space (483m2) contains an electronics lab, machine/wood shop, sewing/crafting supplies, two classrooms, conference area, and library. Everyone is welcome to use our many resources. Find others to create with. Find help with your projects. Help others with their projects. Learn, teach, share. Come to Noisebridge and create!

Noisebridge's public hours are 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM. New visitors are welcome any time (all ages, all skill levels), but it's best to visit when members are present or during an event to make sure we have a volunteer to show you around and make introductions.

Events and Classes

Not all events make it onto this calendar. Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC or in person at Tuesday meetings. Best of all, Noisebridge is about people getting together at the space in San Francisco to do stuff. DO pay attention, as some events just arise organically from the bottom up!

Want to host your event at Noisebridge? We like seeing classes and talks on interesting things pertaining to various subjects of hacking. Most of all, we like seeing familiar faces. Please participate in the space and our weekly Tuesday meetings to see if we're the right audience for what you want to share before announcing a new event. Additionally, please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.

Upcoming Events edit



Friday, February 5, 19:00: HackTheLeft,
Hack the Left is an anticapitalist hackathon, February 5-7 at Noisebridge. This is an experiment to see what happens when you get a bunch of leftists in a room for a weekend with the intention to advance liberatory and anticapitalist projects using technology. This includes software projects like Tor and Signal, art projects like the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project and Men in Grey, hardware projects like mesh networks and signal jammers, and tools for rad organizations like Anti Police-Crimethink Project and Food Not Bombs. It's clear that there's a huge amount of opportunity for liberatory technology. It's up to us to build it.
Hack the Left is especially appropriate for those of us who would rather not get swept up in the capitalist exhibitionism of Super Bowl 50 Week going down around the Northeastern end of Mission St this entire week.


Wednesday, February 17, 19:00: Shop Safety Class, Learn how to use the dirty shop and all of its toys and tools!

Thursday, February 18, 20:00: 5 Minutes of Fame with Guest Speaker from Pi Foundation, The 18-Feb 5 Minutes of Fame] has guest speaker, and fellow Maker, at Noise Bridge to provide us current information from the Pi Foundation, then We could keep him Excellently involve with our 5 Minute Questions allowing Minutes to seek response. Speak for 2 minutes; Listen for 2, respond for 1 minute, however it is your 5 minutes. Use them wisely, and most importantly have fun. Just Add You! NoiseBridge

Noisebridge is up!

We began building Noisebridge in February 2007. Since December 2007 we've had regular Tuesday meetings, and rented our first physical space as of October 1st 2008. We quickly outgrew our first space and have been at our much larger 5,200 square-foot second location since October 1st 2009. We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization as of July 2009, retroactive to October 2008.
