Los Angeles Hack Night

Prerequisites

Hackers only. Bring your laptop and a project to work on. Recruiters, spectators, etc. are not allowed.


Schedule

6:00 Food, drinks

6:30 Stand-up. Announcements, introductions. Briefly introduce yourself and what you're working on. If you're asking for help mention what you're looking for help with. If you're offering help mention what you're offering help with.

6:45-10:00 Hacking


What to expect

Expect to find people sitting around tables talking about and working on their own projects. We don't have presentations  or structure so bring your own project, introduce yourself, ask people "what are you working on", find a seat and get yourself set up, hack away on your project, and have fun. 


RSVP

Leave a comment about what you're working on so others can see what you're up to.


Parking

ParkMe.com has some parking information

There are 2 parking garages nearby that Zimax recommends after 3 pm:

Olive is one block east of Grand Ave.

1. On Olive between 7th St. (Wilshire) and 6th St. there is parking for $5 flat rate

2. On Olive between 6th St. and 5th St. there is the PacMutual parking garage which also offers $5 flat rate

Metered parking is also available in the evening possibly, but is inconvenient for an evening, because it requires one to feed the meter periodically. It is not easy to get in and out of the building. 

No one should park at Central Parking at 1 Wilshire next door--although it is the closest parking available, it is $30 for all day!


Check-in procedure

You'll be required to produce a photo ID confirming your identity.

To get in the building, one must buzz the receptionist inside. There is a buzzer to the right of the front door. Tell the receptionist you're there for the L.A. Hack Night Meetup being hosted by Zimax Networks, Inc. 

You'll be buzzed in
You'll present your ID to the receptionist
You'll sign in at the reception desk
The receptionist will call an elevator

Zimax will have the floor and suite number information logged with the front desk receptionist.  When you get to the appropriate floor, the location of the Meetup will be obvious. The door will be open and there'll be signage.


Free appetizers at Seven

Happy hour (5-7 pm) at Seven, the restaurant and bar outside the building on the first floor at the NE corner of Wilshire and Grand offers free appetizers, so you may want to drop by Seven before coming up to load up on free appetizers.


Sponsors

Zimax Networks is providing the space, desks, chairs, wifi, food, and drinks. Zimax is a cloud management services company in DTLA.


PandaStrike.com is a software consulting group in Los Angeles. They available to hire and they're hiring developers.

    Hey everybody. Zimax is about two blocks east of the 7th Street Red Line Station, so using the Metro is a great option if you don't want to look for parking.

      If you have to bring your car, you can find lots in the Historic Core (e.g., $5 @ 4th & Main) that are cheaper than the in the big office buildings.

    I'm experimenting with a website that involves 3D model animation, that gets rendered by the graphics card's 3D accelerator in the local visitor's browser. EmberJs, ThreeJs, my own dns, webserver, colocated hardware facilities, etc.
