A handful of artists turned up for the very first meetup of this year and it was a success indeed!
The house had seen one of the most amazing art piece, by Meenakshi, that won her 5 awards in exhibitions held in the USA. Each of them shared what art is to them and how does their form of art help them achieve it. It was truly great and inspiring to see such artists create wonderful works!

On International Open Data Day, Datameet hosted an Open Data Hackathon powered by Collab House. 

Datameet is a community of Data Enthusiasts.

The one-day hackathon focused on generating more open data and using it for solving problems. Government of Telangana, has come up with an Open Data Policy in Sept 2015 and is promoting open data in Telangana.  

The hackathon took off by first considering the Agricultural data of the state and covered a lot of other segments. The crowd was focused and everyone shared their knowledge and ideas to use the data for the greater good.

By the end of the day, a good amount of data was analysed and plans were made so as to how this data can help and what can be done about it.

Data is surplus, we just have to use it to efficiently, and meets like this shall educate people to do so.

PCB Design and Fabrication

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Collab House hosted a workshop on PCB Design and Fabrication.

Printed Circuit boards are highly effective when it comes to specific applications. PCB offers features that a regular bread board does not. Besides, it drastically reduces the size of the circuit and makes it durable.

The first half of the session dealt with the Design aspect, where the participants learnt about types of PCBs along with various design and fabrication techniques. This was followed by the designing  in the software. Once thorough with the design, the real fun began post break .

Fabrication was fun. The participants could clearly see and understand how a PCB works. After fabrication, the components were soldered, the circuit was connected and tested for its functionality.

It was a one of its kind workshop, where the participants actually fabricated their PCBs, by using Toner Transfer Method. This workshop delivered a complete hands on experience to the participants. Tools kits and circuitry were given to the participants after the workshop, so they could try their own circuits later too!

Collab House: A Collaborative Community Space

Hyderabad needs a home for people who can collaborate, co-learn and co-work.

We’re building a new self-sustaining local community center– one which can act as a hub of activity for anyone with an independent skill or project and a space for those who seek a chance to build great things alongside the city’s best and brightest.

Collab House is a collaborative community space. We built the space to support hackers, makers, start-ups and creative people to come together, make things, grow their skills, business, in a collaborative, community backed environment.

It will be open to all, where startups, hackers, makers, freelancers, students, artists and those who can work anywhere can gather to collaborate, socialize, teach, learn, play and work.

The Ask:

To date, Collab House has been an all-volunteer effort, powered by members of the community who care. To make all this happen, we have to navigate the crazy expensive world of Jubilee Hills real estate, equipment and furniture.

  • The money we’re raising here($8000) will get us closer to the total $30,000 budget we need to keep the space up and running.
  • The money raised will be used to repair and paint walls, furnish the space, and fully equip to facilitate community-powered education.
  • We’ve started a big beautiful new loft size space at Film Nagar, Hyderabad and are rallying community support to help pay for renovation and outfitting costs.

The Impact:

Help Make This Happen

    • Together we’re building an affordable place where people can work happier, be more successful and thrive.
    • Members of our collaboration community are bright, hard-working, successful, inspiring people to be around. They’re building software, web sites, and businesses. They’re designing, managing, and building amazing things.
    • Most importantly, they’re sharing, ideating and collaborating. At the end of the day, everyone goes home smarter, happier, and more inspired. Hyderabad’s new space will be a home to countless events geared toward helping people learn to be better independents and to connect with others. This includes Meetups, workshops, brainstorms, classes, discussion groups, hackathons, demos, fundraisers, parties, and more.

By offering an extremely affordable and flexible place for people to host their groups and events, we’re fostering the development of healthy communities of people who share common interests. Education is long overdue for an overhaul, and we’re starting to experiment with creative new ways for people to teach and learn. Our focus in the last few weeks has been to initiate activities by doing events, workshops, meetups to promote such collaboration, learning and teaching.
