Every Thursday, the members of Hammerspace gather to socialize, network, and meet new members of the space.

There is plenty of off-street parking, a kids playroom available for tiny makers, and the evening is always the origin point of new and amazing creative ideas.

Tours are led every 30 minutes for those curious about the tools and capabilities of the facility and staff. This is a free event, open to the public.

Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6:00:00 PM iModules Software 8330 Ward Pkwy 5th Floor, Kansas City, MO

Tony Boswell is a Udacity Front End Web Developer Nanodegree Scholarship Graduate who began working at iModules in January of this year.

Before starting his career in tech, Tony had worked the last 14 years as an over the road truck driver, racking up over 1.5 million accident free miles and visiting all but 2 of the 50 states, where he hauled everything from dry vans, to refrigerated trailer, to crude oil tankers. The last 4 years of his driving career, Tony owned his own truck and grain trailer, specializing his transportation business in pet food ingredients, because unlike grain crops, road salt, and sand which were seasonal, pet food was year-round work. His last year as an Owner-operator, Tony spent over 320 days on the road.

Tony is now able to enjoy spending time at home with his wife, and binge-watching his favorite Netflix shows, but his real passion is island hopping. Tony's idea of vacationing is far away from the asphalt jungle and traffic.
