Proceeds from the MadHackers event will benefit the non-profit Danbury Hackerspace opening at the new Innovation Center at 158 Main Street. What is a hackerspace? The Danbury Hackerspace is a new technology center where you can learn about technology like 3D printing, programming, art, electronics, and manufacturing. The Danbury Hackerspace also has a coworking space where people can come down to Main Street and work with other people. The Danbury Hackerspace is part of the downtown Danbury renaissance that is happing now!


What is a “Mad Hacker?” The Mayor calls the Danbury Hackerspace team his “Mad Hackers,” so we named the conference after them. We’re creating a unique event for Danbury, and the name also fits with our tradition of being the former hat capital of the world!
