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.

Hardware Hacking Classes

Interested in learning more about electronics? We cover everything from the very basics to walking away with your own 3D printer. Click here to see what classes are coming up at the Hackyard. 

Software Classes

Let’s polish those coding skills. You know you want to. Check out what software classes are happening.

3D Printing Classes

We’re pretty adept at melting some ABS plastic. We don’t just teach you how to use a 3D printer, we teach you how to make one. Sign up for our class to build your very own.

Maker Classes for Kids

Start ‘em early. Learn programming, 3D printing, Arduinos, & more all targeted for a younger audience. See what’s coming up.

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