What is a hackerspace?

  • A laboratory
  • A club
  • A meeting place
  • A lecture place
  • A common interest group
    • Sharing of information
    • Sharing of knowledge
    • Sharing of hardware
    • Sharing of expertise

A hackerspace is foremost a community focused on equally minded people. Definition on wikipedia

Hackerspace in Brno

Scope of our hackerspace

  • Electronics
  • Robotics
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Security
  • Penetration testing
  • Open source software development


The new code name for our hackerspace is base48. Technically we are 'Underground, o.s.' - a form of NGO (Občanské sdružení in czech) non-profit organization, where each member has the right to vote at meetings and fully participate in the hackerspace organization.

We were also known as (obsolete):

  • HSBR - Hacker Space BRno
  • Underground hackerspace
  • Underground lab

Why the number 48/0x30/0b00110000?

Because our current space is at Čápkova 48. And because with other numbers like base64 we would have problems being found by people searching for us on google :)
