Fixhacktion Night: Apple Products Repair – Monday, July 8th, 7:30PM
Come hang with us on July 8 for the first night of a new fixers series. Hack together a fix for your apple product! There will be a live demo of apple repairs and lots of help on deck to get you going. Want to replace your macbook HDD with an SSD? Cracked iPhone screen? Or is your apple product just plain not working? Bring it in!
Some spare parts will be available on a first-come, first serve basis. But if you have a specific repair in mind and you know what part you need please bring it along. The Mac Market on west 4th is a decent resource for some things and iFixit is good for out-of-warranty apple parts. If it turns out that the part you need isn’t available or you run out of time we hope that you will leave with the confidence to repair it yourself!
DATE: Monday, July 8th (add to your calendar)
TIME: 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM
COST: By donation at the door (suggested, $5) NO ONE TURNED AWAY!
WHERE: Our new building (The Bunker) 270 1st Ave E, Vancouver BC V5T 1A6
