Baltimore Hackerspace: Four Years in the “Making”

Baltimore Hackerspace is a non-profit group founded by David Powell, Jason McMahon, Paul King , Miles Pekala, and Chris Cockrum. Though making things since January 2009, Baltimore Hackerspace just recently revamped its logo and name to better reflect the city they call home to their 1250 square feet of space. Currently, Baltimore Hackerspace has more than 20 members who all contribute their share of knowledge, talent, and money to keep the hackerspace open and exciting.

The group participates in several competition each year. These competitions give them a reason to work on projects as a group. The following links showcase some of the group’s projects, as well as some individual projects.
