  • 57North is Aberdeen's Hackerspace and Tuesday is our open night.

    For those of you not in the know, Tuesday evenings are open to anyone
    who wishes to come to 57North!
    We get up to a range of activities on Tuesday nights, including but not limited to
    social contact, programming, manufacturing weird things and consuming sugary treats.

    We usually begin at about 7, but sometimes someone will be in earlier.

    If you're new, we'd suggest you bring a laptop, and perhaps a project you
    want to work on.

    If you want to come but are unsure about anything, ask in IRC - #57n on freenode. There will be a mailing list post at lists.57north.co detailing more information also.

  • After the success of our “.NET and Natter” in the summer I thought it would be good to have a Christmas Catch Up as our last event for 2018. No agenda for this event, just a catch up and general geek out on all things .NET, some food and a drink or two. Venue to be confirmed depending on numbers (open for suggestions) but it will be in the city so might provide you an opportunity to grab those last minute presents on the way.

    Christmas jumpers completely optional, but there might be a price for the geekiest themed jumper. Please keep your RSVP up to date as we will be limiting number to ensure a suitable venue.

  • We will be meeting at 57North Hacklab to bring together like minded people, discuss digital freedoms and explore the use of cryptographic tools.

    Discuss digital rights issues that are in the news. Learn how you can help to protect your rights in a digital world. Bring a smartphone or laptop and browse the web anonymously, learn about these technologies and chat about the reasons we need them.

    • "Do average people really need this kind of security? Yes. They may be planning a political campaign, discussing taxes, or having an illicit affair. They may be designing a new product, discussing a marketing strategy, or planning a hostile business takeover. Or they may be living in a country that does not respect the rights of privacy of its citizens. They may be doing something that they feel shouldn't be illegal, but is. For whatever reason, the data and communications are personal, private, and no one else's business." -- Bruce Schneier, Applied Cryptography - Second Edition (https://...
