About us[edit]

H.A.C.K. is the first hackerspace in Hungary, operating since February 2009. In December 2009 we moved into a flat on the first floor of Fogasház, and in April 2012 we moved into a basement which is located in the inner city of Budapest, near a major traffic junction (Kálvin tér).



We've started a series of smaller camps, the first was CampZer0 in 2013, followed by Camp++ in August 2014. A similar event will take place in August 2015 called Camp++ 0x7df.

Weekly plenums[edit]

A weekly plenum is held on every Tuesday at 19.00.

Hack Thursdays[edit]

Thursday is usually the day of the week when either workshops are done in the evening or people just gather and work on and/or show off their projects.



  • Lockpicking workshop at 19.00 on the last Thursday every month
  • Python workshops called Pylvax on Sunday afternoons
  • Talks about cryptography called Cryptonite approx. once per month

Ham radio[edit]

Our callsign is HA5KBP (HACKBP with a 5 instead of C), and we're famous for our SSTV beacon.

Connection with neighbouring hackerspaces[edit]

We have contact with Hackerspace Szeged, and are open to such contribution with others as well.

Some of our members regularly attend Metalab's various events, such as NinjaCon and Stadtflucht. We participate in the European cross-border hacking community, and maintain friendship with the Progressbar in Slovakia. We've also had visitors (among others) from Syn2cat, Brmlab and Kiberpipa.
