The Recompiler is a feminist hacker magazine, launched in 2015. Our goal is to help people learn about technology in a fun, playful way, and highlight a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. We’re especially interested in infrastructure: the technical and social systems we depend on. We want to share what it’s like to learn and work with technology, and teach each other to build better systems and tools.

We’re supported by sales of our magazine issues and subscriptions, contributions from readers, and revenue from affiliate programs (or as Amazon likes to say it, “Recompiler Media LLC is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com”). No content or product recommendations have been added for the sake of creating affiliate revenue.
