Everyone loves printing HUGE images on canvas! Create that special piece of decor for your home, or that unusual gift for your truly weird brother-in-law.

In this class we'll print the image of your choice on Canvas using the Large Format Printer then construct a Canvas Stretcher to mount it on. Student may want to bring their own Computer​ to the class and should be comfortable around Basic Woodworking Tools​ like drills, clamps, staple guns, and saws.

The cost of the class includes a 36 x 24 inch canvas print. If you would like to print something larger we are happy to accommodate you, but there will be a charge of $15 for each additional foot of canvas used.

In this two hour class we will cover:

● Selecting and preparing images to be printed

● Setting up the printer

● Printing your image

● Building a simple wood Canvas Stretcher in the Hammerspace Woodshop

● Mounting your Image on your Stretcher

If you are not a Hammerspace member, please arrive early so we can get you sorted out with a safety waiver and WiFi Password. We will be using woodworking tools and searching/downloading images online.

Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

Dockerize Your .NET Development Environment

It works on my machine. We've all heard it. Most of us have said it. It's been impossible to get around it… until now. Not only can Docker-izing your .NET development environment solve that issue, but it can make it drop-dead simple to onboard new developers, keep a team working forward and allow everyone on the team use their desired tools! 

I will show you how to get Docker set up to use as the run environment for your .NET projects, how to maintain the docker environment, and even how easy it will be to deploy the whole environment to production in a way that you are actually developing in an environment that isn't just "like" production. It IS the production environment!

You will learn the basics of Docker, how to use it to develop and how deploy your "development" environment as the production environment!
