About Null Space Labs
Null Space Labs is for anyone doing interesting things with technology and security. Since May 2010, we've offered wifi, coworking space, an electronics and hardware lab (with soldering stations and rework equipment), a wet lab, wood and metal working tools, public computers, an arcade, and, most of all, a creative environment that's open to visitors.
NSL members work on various projects every week, including DIY electronics, hardware hacking, software programming, hacking (exploit development, penetration testing), information security, lock picking, game development, entrepreneurship, graphics programming, AI, photography, privacy, civil rights, and more!
The group that operates Null Space Labs sees itself as an infrastructure provider and exerts little influence over projects and events carried out at the lab. Members come from a variety of backgrounds and offer a wealth of experience, knowledge, and assistance for whatever you might be working on. We are trying to be financially independent and operate solely through membership fees, classes, and donations.
Where is Null Space Labs?
Null Space Labs is near the Burbank Airport and open for hacking - check our Meetup for class and event schedules. Location and parking info on the wiki.
When can I visit Null Space Labs?
NSL has an "Open Door" policy. If we're open, you're welcome to stop by! We're always open on Tuesday night from 19:00 - 23:00 (we often close much later). If you're new we recommend stopping by on a Tuesday; most members and keyholders stop by on Tuesdays. We hold classes some times see our meetup for when. We're open on other weekdays, too, but make sure to check this website (top left corner), ask on Discord or call to verify we'll be around when you arrive.
On this website you will see a sign that says that we are Open or Closed. This is reading from a sensor connected to the front door of NSL. If it says open - some one is at the space and you are welcome to stop in! With that in mind, it's a good idea to hop into the discord (which is also notified when the switch is flipped) and do a sanity check. You never know how many people are at the space or how soon they will be leaving if you don't ask! You can also give us a call when you are nearby at 2135457100
Classes and Events
Lockpicking - NSL has been the proud host of Los Angeles lockpicking meetup for over 10 years. Join us the 3rd Friday of every month at 7pm. We are home to some of the best and brightest lockpickers on the West coast. Each month we have a different topic with a presentation or hands-on workshop where attendees learn about and work with a wide variety of locks and keys. Examples of topics we cover are: lockpicking, key bumping, impressioning, decoding, safe cracking, master keying, making your own tools, making your own locks, high security lock research, rare and exotic lock showcases, tamper-evident seals
Classes - NSL volunteers share their knowledge with the community via free or low cost classes. Topics include electronics, programming, infosec, homebrewing and more. All costs and donations are used to maintain Nullspace for the community. If you'd like to teach a class contact a keyholder!
