Meet Dave! Restarter, parent, green ninja and “pentegenarian polymath with a penchant for poking around in things”. He loves pink duct tape, among other things. Read more.
We call volunteers who share their repair skills Restarters. They help with basic electrical fixing involving changing fuses and plugs. Others deal with software issues on laptops and mobiles. Yet others take on intricate electronics repairs involving soldering.
And still others will help to facilitate these repairs, welcoming people, finding chairs, facilitating conversation, and helping the event to run smoothly.
What unites Restarters is the love of a repair challenge and their collaborative approach, they love to share skills.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and no formal qualifications are needed. We are a radically open, diverse community – join us!
