... start up a hacker space ...

FYI, There is a hacker space in Culver City. I haven't yet visited them, but they seem like a pretty active group.

Crash Space
10526 Venice Blvd, Culver City CA 90232


I visited Crash Space on the night they hosted an open house. I would go their every day except for the fact that it is that I don't drive (I find it odd as I am 19 years old) and they are located 15 miles away. I also have yet to visit Null Space Labs (http://032.la in Downtown LA. Until I have my license I have been buying in bulk at All Electronics in Van Nuys and working out of my garage. Also recently went to Hackaday Live (http://hackaday.com/2014/01/27/recap-hackadays-first-live-event/). Was anybody else on the forum there?
C program run. C program crash. C programmer quit.

Just FYI:

The LA Arduino Enthusiasts Meetup group meets once a month (usually) in Santa Monica, the next meeting is actually tomorrow, Thursday October 30th, 2014.
For more info please see http://www.meetup.com/LA-Arduino/

I am actually one of those giving a talk tomorrow night...  ;)



Anyone interested in joining our google little box challenge team located in socal. We are developing a SIC or GAN device switching architecture to make a small effecient inverter package. We have 5 unique ideas to start that will help us win the million dollars.

Most importantly we are going to give the prize money away to a non profit in Haiti for the development of a wind and solar power plant.

Who's in?

Redondo Beach here. born and raised in redondo but lived in miami for 11 years but had serious difficulty finding anyone into electronics stuff out there so returning back to redondo. Just saying hi and wondering who's out here.


Name's Miggs, from Reseda, CA. Would love to meet up with others and do a meet up like mentioned in the first page of this thread.

I think many of us are scattered throughout the socal area, would be very interesting to think of a way we can all meet like on some type of Oovoo / FaceTime type of thing or maybe do snaps on snapchat to communicated directly from our own home labs.

I also frequent the All Electronics store like some have mentioned here. I don't drive at the moment as I'm restoring my high school dream car, an 80s RX-7, it's an 87 RX-7 Turbo II. I got into Initial D back then and fell in love with it hahaha

Hope to meet like minds here and maybe even make some friends.


Huntington Beach, I'm 73 and just ventured into the world of Arduino. I know nothing. Total newbie. Watching videos, reading, buying starter kit. Need help. Have no idea what I will be able to do with this once I learn it. So, I'm looking for someone to learn it with me.



I just saw this, and will be watching what happens with groups in the SoCal area.

I'm East of most of you, out in the San Bernardino / Riverside area, and am hoping that I can make it out to a meet sometime soon.
