Hi all you amazing Vancouver HackSpace folks.
Its been a long time sense I have been living in the city and been an active member however, I recently visited the new facility and had a tour around the space. Truly inspiring.
I have some questions and requests and wondering if anyone there would be able to point me in the right direction…
- I would really like to extricate our member chat / project management / documents, out of Facebook groups… I have kind of started a Slack group but I am not totally sure it is a good fit for the group / project as I am not sure how long we are going to be able to use it before it becomes a pay for use and it looks like it gets expensive fast.
- Does anyone have any experience with any open source / free or cheep solutions?
Is discord a viable option? I need it to be accessible to as wide a range of technical sophistication as possible, many are not even going to look at using something if there is not just a web interface…
Does anyone have any sort of membership management software? right now we have a book with a name and date that the member signed up, and that has been OK when it is just one person / place that memberships have been administrated, however with this summer coming fast I would like to send out membership drives and not be the only one that can add new people to the system…
any thoughts would be welcomed.
We would very much like to get a key-fob system up and running as soon as possible, anyone have some direct hands on experience that wouldn’t mind sharing a little
Aside from a laser cutter (that we have some grant funding earmarked for) what are some essential, must have start up tools that we need… Keep us in mind if you see a good deal somewhere
This is what our little shack looks like…
oops sorry can’t include links in post… oh well its super cool!
