Come visit us during Art Rotterdam

During Art Rotterdam, on the 9th of February the Keilewerf will open its doors. It the breeding ground for creative entrepreneurs in Rotterdam, divided over 2 buildings with a total of 6000m2. The Keilewerf is a place for steelbenders, artist, furniture makers, musicians and ofcourse hackers. Pixelbar is located in The Keilewerf, so we’ll be opening our doors to the public too!

You can find us at the Keilewerf 1 and visit us from 13:00 until at least 17:00.

During these hours we will show off our projects, and might even invite you to do some soldering, programming, hacking and/or play a game with our VR goggles. If you have your own small project, just bring it! There is plenty of room in our hackerspace to work on it. And if you really enjoy your time here, you can even become a member!

In the evening there might be some participants left, so don’t hesitate to drop by if you don’t make it before 17:00. On the top of this page you can see whether the space is opened (or simply ask us in our chat).

There is no need to sign up, just come by. When the doors are closed, just push the big red button on the door in the middle of the building and someone will come to open the door.

When you can’t visit us on the 9th of February then you’re always welcome to visit us on Wednesdays or Saturdays, check on our website whether we’re open or closed.

29 November Happy Sint Pannekoek!

The 29th of November it is a party once again! Just like last year, we will be celebrating Sint Pannekoek with everybody starting at 19:00, with lots and lots of pancakes and friends! Please give us a heads up if you like to join (so we can go grocerie shopping only once :)) on to our Slack or IRC.

Last year we baked pancakes for about 4 hours, Everyone really enjoyed eating pancakes and placing pancakes over their heads. Sounds strange doesn’t it? Well, it’s a very old Rotterdam tradition and we’d like to celebrate it by basically eating lots of pancakes. Yep. It’s the best tradition there is. And nobody will ever change our tradition.


PS: help baking pancakes is very welcome!

Join NodeSchool #9 and win a ticket to AmsterdamJS!


It’s been a while, but we’re back! Our space had some renovation, which now allows us to do a workshop downstairs and a freeform upstairs if you want.


Instead of creating a traditional API using REST (a way to create a webserver and serve data to a website), we’ll be looking at GraphQL. This is a technology that has been picked up by larger companies, which allows you to do actual quering of your data.

Don’t worry if you didn’t really get that! We’ll be able to help everyone out, whether you’re a beginning with programming or somebody that already start doing NodeJS development.


Want to show of your project? Or need help with your project? It doesn’t need to be related to GraphQL - but that would be nice. Talk, learn and do projects with others.

Nederlandse Tekst

Op Zaterdag 31 Maart zal er bij Pixelbar een open dag gehouden worden. Natuurlijk is Pixelbar niet de enige hackerspace die een open dag houdt! Bijna alle Nederlandse hackerspaces doen mee. Je kunt hier dus ook gerust eens een kijkje nemen.

Vanaf 11:00 tot op zijn minst 17:00 zijn we open. We proberen wat projecten te laten zien, en we hebben natuurlijk plaats genoeg om zelf ook eens de soldeerbout ter hande te nemen. Programmeer je liever? geen probleem! we hebben WiFi. Als je aan een eigen project wilt werken is dat natuurlijk ook mogelijk.

S’avonds zullen er mogelijk ook nog een aantal deelnemers in de hackerspace zijn. Mocht je het dus niet redden om voor 17:00 langs te komen, geen probleem!. Kijk gewoon even op onze website naar de spacestate om te zien of we nog open zijn.

Inschrijven is niet nodig, val gewoon binnen. We zijn te vinden in de Keilewerf.

Mocht je meer informatie willen, of een andere hackerspace willen bezoeken. Neem dan zeker een kijkje op de Nederlandse hackerspaces site.

Als je er heel veel zin in hebt, en zelfs mee wilt helpen, dan is dat natuurlijk ook mogelijk! schrijf je in dat geval even in op de Pixelbar Wiki ( Spacenet account required ).
