We are Noisebridge

Noisebridge is an infrastructure provider for technical-creative projects, collaboratively run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. We operate primarily in a 5,200 square-foot space located in the heart of San Francisco. We teach, we learn, we share. Read more about Noisebridge or watch a short video...

We are committed to providing a safe space to work, learn, and play. Please read and understand our anti-harassment policy and community standards. This is how we expect people to behave when they are at Noisebridge, and you should also expect this standard of behavior from others in the space.

Noisebridge relies on your donations to continue operating. If you have found Noisebridge useful, please consider donating to help us keep operating.

Events and Classes

Full Event Listing | Unofficial Google Calendar

Want to attend a class or event? Before you arrive or once you're at the space, just ask the teacher or event organizer if you can be their guest. Read more about our access policy. Please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.

Not all events make it onto this calendar. Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC or in person at Tuesday meetings. Best of all, Noisebridge is about people getting together at the space in San Francisco to do stuff. DO pay attention, as some events just arise organically from the bottom up!

Want to host your event at Noisebridge? We like seeing classes and talks on interesting things pertaining to various subjects of hacking. Most of all, we like seeing familiar faces. Please participate in the space and our weekly Tuesday meetings to see if we're the right audience for what you want to share before announcing a new event. Additionally, please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.
