I think Carol misunderstands the term "hacking". I suspect she is thinking about "cracking". Here is a clarification: http://www.iwriteiam.nl/HackerDef.html

Carol, hackfest is pretty free form. People collaborate on projects, code by themselves, seek help or advice, pitch projects and ideas to each other, or just meet other rubyists and socialize/network. It isn't a formal competition or anything, and no one is expected to present or form teams or compete for anything.

What do they do there? You must be joking about hacking!
Help support your Meetup
Founded in 2004, NYC.rb is the place for experienced Ruby and Rails programmers in New York City.
We meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. Second Tuesdays are for one or more talks, and fourth Tuesdays are just hackfests, where people bring their laptops and hang out.
Job postings are allowed on the mailing list if they meet the following requirements:
* You must identify the company by name. * You must put [JOB] in the subject to help others filter out these messages. * The job must be Ruby-related, and in the NYC metro area.
You cannot directly contact other list members about jobs unless they've contacted you first--violators of this rule may be banned and/or publicly shamed.
If you have any questions or concerns about these rules, please feel free to contact the Meetup organizers.
Chat with us at nyc.rb on irc.freenode.net.

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.
