Connecting with other Hackerspaces online

Continuing the discussion from Thoughts from visiting a hackerspace:

We are, as of recently, now connected to all of the spaces on through their Matrix server, which also includes many IRC chat rooms. Join us there at

See the massive index of IRC and Matrix chats at

The index is often sorted by country. See overview of sub-index


  • Note these chats and indexes are only accessible through open tools such as IRC and Matrix.
  • mailing lists and wikis are common.
  • A very large number of hackerspaces can also be found on XMPP / Jabber, which we are not active on.

You will notice the impact we’ve had internationally as our wiki, and this forum, are commonly linked example resources for other spaces :+1: .
