Welcome to Hacksmiths

Everything you need to know

We are a student-run society at Goldsmiths, University of London. In order to get involved, you don't need to be a computing student or someone with lots of technical knowledge - just an interest in technology will get you a long way! We believe that everyone should have the chance to hack around with tech.

How to get started

  1. Become a Hacksmith by joining our society. It costs £5 for the whole academic year.
  2. Subscribe to our Facebook Events Calendar. We post all of our events on Facebook, and if you subscribe you'll get notifications when we post them!
  3. Like our Facebook Page and join our Facebook Group.
  4. Become part of our Hacksmiths Community Slack. You can chat with other community members, and ask questions.
  5. Say hi to us on Twitter.

A bit more

We run three big events every year - Sex Tech Hack, a Global Game Jam centre, and our flagship event Anvil Hack! We also run socials, workshops, talks and show & tell sessions for our members. We occasionally take a group of people to events run by other awesome members of the UK tech community.

By being involved in Hacksmiths activites, including our in-person events and online channels, you are agreeing to abide by our Code of Conduct, which we actively enforce. Please be nice to everyone.
