-Help plan the future of Dorkbot, polish up the web site, hang out!

Regular meetups:
June 10th, 2024
July 8th, 2024
August 12th, 2024

Meetups run from 6:30-9:30ish PM

Dorkbot generally happens the second Monday of each month. Check back though, sometimes we like to be tricky (Or holidays get in the way).


People doing strange things with electricity!

Part hackathon, part geek social, Dorkbot is a relaxed, informal gathering of electronic artists, circuit designers, microcontroller programmers, retro computer scavengers, video game designers, digital archeologists, hackers, cyberpunks, and mod synth gearheads in Portland, Oregon. In many respects it is the creative, dynamic 21st century successor to the Homebrew Computer Club.

Bring your electronic wonders (or monsters) for others to see, or come see what others have been painstakingly chipping away at in their spare time. Whether it's code or circuits, electronic creativity of all sorts is welcome here.

This is an active, ongoing event with average attendance between 20-50 people. It is free and open to everyone, and newcomers are welcome (but please read our Code of Conduct before arriving).

Looking forward to seeing you for a night of insight, inspiration, and circuitry-inspired weirdness.
