What We Do

About Hackyard

We are a hackerspace located in Athens, Georgia. We love hardware hacking and teaching people how to code for hardware interaction. Come check out our workshop: 165 E Dougherty, in the FourAthens tech incubator.

Arduino and Raspberry Pi Classes

Join your friends and learn how to program for hardware and build cool stuff! 

Hardware + Software Hacking

Bring in old hardware, tear it apart, and find out what makes it tick.

3D Printing

We’re pretty adept at melting some ABS plastic, and our permanent, in-house 3D printer is well on its way to completion.

Maker Classes for Kids

Start ‘em early. Learn programming, 3D printing, Arduinos, & more all targeted for a younger audience.

People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.
