This is the official meetup group for the epic series of developer games called Escape from /dev/null, inside starships or dungeons - the geekiest, quirkiest, most welcoming programming competition around, with the most baroque prizes.

Escape from /dev/null is a science-fiction or fantasy story that you experience by coding it. That’s about it :)

The outer game map is a graph, which is navigated on a communal web-based interface. When a team decide to take a certain path from the node they’re on to a connected node, they’re presented with a challenge.

The inner game is revealed step by step a challenge a time.

But it's also a series of events that let developers meet companies and the other way around, in a way that let the companies gauge the skills of each developer in the same way they would in a full-day technical interview but in a relaxed, fun and respectful manner.

The worst thing that might happen if you attend an event as a developer is that you might get a discrete offer of interest afterwards from some of the participating companies.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
