The Handheld and Portable Computer Club is a voluntary, independent organisation run by and for its members founded in 1982, helping people get the most out of technology and hacking in the non-pejorative sense.


HPCC issues a quarterly, paper journal called DataFile to its members. The journal contains articles written by club members and other authors from around the world.


HPCC meets in London, UK on the second Saturday of every month at Imperial College. Meetings start around 13:30. All existing and prospective members are welcome.

We meet in the Physics Department (also called the Blackett Laboratory) of Imperial College in South Kensington. The nearest underground station is South Kensington. Follow the signposts in the station to the museums or walk north along Exhibition Road. Turn left along Prince Consort Road. The building is at the end of the road on the corner of Prince Consort Road and Queen's Gate - building 6.

Once in the building go up to level 8. The Physics Common Room is on your left as you get out of the lift. If you are unable to get into the building, call the number shown on the HPCC Notice on the door and ask for someone to come down and let you in.
