Noisebridge is a fun space for sharing, creation, collaboration, research, development, mentoring, and of course, learning. Come visit, work, and use our equipment free (but please donate when you can!)

Noisebridge is also more than a physical space; it's a community with roots in hackerspaces extending around the world.

For schedule, activities, and other information see NB15! For planning (or a peak behind the curtain) see NB15 Planning.
A welcome to Noisebridge walk-through video & introduction to the culture of the space. NOTE: This video shows the previous physical space at 2169 Mission, we are in a new space not shown here. You will still find many familiar artifacts split across two new floors and a driveway.

We recently completed a Reboot of the space, to focus on making tools and active workspace available to more member participants!

Noisebridge Lore

Noisebridge grew out of Dorkbot and Chaos Communications Camp in August, 2007. We have had regular weekly Tuesday meetings since September 2007. We rented our first physical space at 83c September 1st 2008, which we quickly outgrew, and were at our much larger 5,200 square-foot second location at [2169] Mission from September 1st 2009 to mid-2020; now at 272 Capp St. with 6,000 square feet just behind the old Mission St. location. Noisebridge was granted tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status in July 2009, retroactive to October 2008.
