HICapacity

Mele kalikimaka from HICapacity! We’ve been making some changes to the space and membership. More info on our site http://hicapcity.org. HICapacity is member supported and we’re about 10 members short on breaking even so we’d greatly appreciate any support as we enter the 2017.

This year we are going to be making the move over to being a 501c non-profit organization as a learning and tech community. As such we’d like the space to be more accessible by the community for events and support.

All regular members will now be able to get key cards to the space for 24/7 access (well as long as you don’t live there..). If you are student member you can get one right way by volunteering for offices hour. Message @taesup (ed@hicapacity.org) for both the form and the student rate code.

The space now has a new projector and streaming box that can be setup to stream events to Youtube, Twitch, and more. We’ll be trying to make our streaming workshops available as they happen to everyone in the community. Check out our public event calendar and message @taesup (ed@hicapacity.org) if you’d like to to hold a community event or workshop.

Thanks to all our supporters, keep building, and have a happy New Year!

Hey everyone! We’re sorry for being off the radar for so long, again. We’re still here! We just wanted to share that our GoFundMe campaign was a success! The space is looking better and we have a more comfortable environment for everyone! It took us a bit but we have purchased everything we wanted. We’ve purchased brand new office chairs to replace our old, half-working, and mismatched ones. We’ve also got a portable AC to get us through those warm summer nights. In addition we’ve got a second projector that we can mount and a webcam to record and/or stream talks. You can see our new equipment in the slideshow link above. A special shout out to member Jesse for coordinating the entire campaign and setting everything up!

We couldn’t have gotten all these shiny new things without your support! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. We’re extremely grateful to all the members and supporters for helping us to keep HICapacity going!

Hello everyone! Wow has it really been that long since we posted something? We apologize for not posting in a while! If you’re looking for us we can always be found on our Facebook page!

Some of the members have been busy improving the space! HICapacity received some awesome shelving and we’re putting it to good use! The space is looking more streamlined and organized.

More improvements are forthcoming and Jesse has setup a GoFundMe donation drive to help us achieve our space revamp. Our goal is to reach $2,500 and we’re getting close! If you want to support us or see more details about what we’re going to do with the funds please see the GoFundMe page for more info. Thank you to those who have already supported us!

We’re going to be addressing two major pain points that we’ve always had. The need for decent seating (we currently have a mismash of partially broken office chairs) and the lack of AC after 7 PM. Even though we have windows they do little to help cool the space at night. The bulk of the funds will go toward buying us new chairs and a portable AC unit. The remainder will go to upgrading the technology in the space to support recording/streaming for presentations and additional storage solutions.

So what else have we been up to? Pretty much the same as last year. We’ve been continuing with having talks at the space. In fact there is one tomorrow! It is titled There’s a Pheonix In My Elm Tree and will be an introduction to using Elm with the Pheonix framework. Stop by if you can!

That’s it for now! We will post photos of the space as we update it. We’re extremely grateful to all the members and supporters for helping us to keep HICapacity going!
