A Place To Call Home

Hackerspace Gent (0x20) is a hackerspace in the wonderful city of Ghent, Belgium. It is a physical space run by a group of people dedicated to various aspects of constructive & creative tinkering. This page is an ever growing resource of information about who we are, what we do, and how you can become a part of all the awesomeness.


Don't worry, we won't break into your computer. The hacker culture is a subculture of individuals who enjoy the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming the limitations of current technologies to achieve novel and clever outcomes. The culture consists of, but is not limited to: computing, networking, programming, music, gaming, electronics, lock picking, woodworking, robotics, science fiction... However, the defining characteristic of a hacker is not the activities performed themselves, but the manner in which it is done. A hacker is someone who invents, constructs, learns, shares, trains basic skills and is willing to think outside the box to find a creative solution to a problem.

Note: While we hackers are always aiming to be constructive, there is a group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but have a different motivation. These are people who get a kick out of breaking into computers for unethical purposes. Unfortunately, some media have been using the word ‘hacker’ to describe people we do not necessarily agree with.
