Reverse Engineering 102, 2nd Semester

February 25th, 2011 2 comments

While feedback on the first run of the RE102 class comes in, I wanted to let people know that we will be offering a second run of the class.  Based on comments both on and off the site, it seems like we will have another full class.  I haven’t finalized on a date yet as I want to update the class a bit based on feedback from the first set of attendees; but the date will be decided and posted soon.  So here are some ways you can stay updated to catch the class announcement and register before it fills up:

  1. Follow @hive13 on Twitter
  2. Add the Hive13 RSS feed to your reader
  3. Use the Reload Every plugin and never take your eyes off the site (not recommended)

I can tentatively say that we are shooting for some time in March, but more details will come in the future.  Hope to see you there :)

SMT Hand soldering 101

February 10th, 2011 1 comment

We will be hosting a SMT Hand soldering class at the Hive on Wednesday March 2nd at 7pm.  Goal for the class is to cover simple, easy to do (with a steady hand) techniques and materials used for soldering common SMT packages WITH
LEADS.  NO BGA.  NO QFN.  (i.e. nothing with “blind” pads underneath the device that need soldered – can’t do that well without reflow IMHO)

Targets:
SOIC
TQFP
resistors, capacitors down to 0402 (I’m not good enough to do 0201 by hand consistently)
connectors (mini USB, ethernet, etc.)

This covers 90% of the MCUs, transitors/FETs and passive components commonly used by enthusiasts.  We will most likely be building AMP kits that you will be able to take home after the class.  Seats are extremely limited for this class but if it sells out we plan on having this class again.

Date: 3/2/2011  Time: 7pm-9pm

Reverse Engineering 102 Sold Out

February 4th, 2011 9 comments

Do you want to crack software?  Do you want to violate the DMCA?  Do you want to break the law?  Well, you’ll have to wait for some other time to learn how to do these things.  The Reverse Engineering 102 class has filled up.

“But Billy, what about…” TOO BAD.

Actually if you want to take the class, post a comment in this thread and include your availability, especially enumerating days which you are not available.  If there is enough interest, we can offer the class again.  Also we totally will not use the information of days you are busy to plan a burglary of your residence.  Like definitely will not.  Probably.

New Membership Tiers!

November 24th, 2010 No comments

New Membership TiersAt the Hive we are really excited to announce new membership tiers!  We are now offering $50 a month for FULL membership to new members.  This is the same level of access as our old $100 tier, which gives you a door code, 24/7 access to the space, lockers, discounts on classes and the admiration of your peers!

We are having a membership drive to get 15 new members.  This number is important because with 15 new members we can ensure that the overall membership to the space can be lowered to $50/mo for good and still pay our rent!  There is also a little red meter under the subscribe  button on the main page so everybody can follow along on the progress of the drive.

To become a full member goto the main page at www.hive13.org and click “Subscribe” on the right hand side.

A little lower down the the sidebar is another new tier called the Elite tier.  This is a donation tier.  If you can’t make it to the Hive but you still want to support us, then this is the tier for you!  Members will also get discounts on upcoming classes at the hive!  If you are a full time student then you can sign up for the Elite tier, fill out the student application (still to come) and you can be a full member as well!

Please spread this message around.  We need to make this membership drive a success!
