We are a group of makers, hackers, coders, programmers, and technologists that want to contribute to the tech community by providing a place to learn from others. The Hack The People Meetup groups are places where anyone is welcome, regardless of experience, age, gender, sexual orientation, and can be part of a coding project. We're going to be getting to know each other at the meetups and participate in "co-opathons", hackathons in which everyone works on the same project and learns together, regardless of their skill levels. Through these local meetup groups, we hope to create mentor-mentee relationships which we can then expand to foster more collaboration and mentorship within the tech industry. The meetups will usually last between 2 - 3 hours, and we plan to all go to a local restaurant/bar for food and/or drinks afterwards.
