Hacker Lab comes to Midtown

Not those kind of hacker skills.

Not those kind of hacker skills.

The hackers are in Midtown.

And this is a good thing: Sacramento native Gina Lujan recently moved her collaborative workspace for software and hardware developers, Hacker Lab, to new digs on the corner of 17th and I streets in Midtown.

The Lab previously was located in Curtis Park above Pangaea Two Brews Cafe, where it kicked things off in March. But membership—freelance tech workers who needed desks or office space to work on projects—skyrocketed from zero to 200 since this past spring, which is why the recent move to a headquarters in Midtown.

Lujan says the Lab hopes to continue providing a community, plus more “education and mentorship to entrepreneurs and startups” in the new, larger spot. Plus, there are fun events on the horizon, such as a Hackathon scheduled for November, where developers will compete for prizes. And bragging rights, natch.
