How the Repair Workshops work:

Repair workshops are events which are open to the general public where members of all levels technical abilities and experience get together to help each other repair vintage computer hardware. Usually, we will have a signup Google Sheet where we let others know what we are working on and which items we are bringing for repair. This helps others know if they want to work together or just bring tool or software to help with your project. The signup sheet also helps the organizers to plan on how many are coming.

We have been doing the repair workshops for several years at InfoAge and try to do them once per month. We have done them at System Source for a few years and do them once or twice per year. The repair workshop at InfoAge has a fee to rent the rooms while the repair workshop at System Source is no charge. Each location has a different time schedule. Check on the individual pages for more information.
