Protonight - Pair Programming Hack Session - Idea Person

Get paired up with a random person to hack on whatever you want for 2 hours!

RSVP on this calendar if you're an "idea person" (you have an idea you want to work on with a developer).  If you're a developer (and you want to work on someone else's idea) RSVP via the SF Rails or SF Javascript meetup calendars.

See http://protonight.com for more about the format.

    Hey all,
    Many of you wanted to know when we'd be open. Well... we opened to the public on Tuesday! And our skylight is installed (it wasn't there during the protonight). Anyway, we're here every day till 10pm, so come on by. See you soon!

    Thank you, Craig for organization great meetup, Rich for providing amazing space, food and drinks, and all the super baristas at Workshop Cafe. What a group of smart people! I had a great brainstorming session with my partner.

      I meant, thank you Craig for "organizing" great meetup. Swype has its own mind...

    We at Workshop had such a great time with you all last night! That was the first time we'd ever tested our processes and app with an outside audience, and we really had a ball txt'ed you back, being HAILed to your table, and responding quickly to your email orders. It was really a ton of fun!

    Many of you asked when we'll be opening. We have a couple final touches and a permit to finish, but it's literally "any day now". We'll be announcing the Grand Opening on our FB page, so stay tuned there. http://workshopcafe.com/fbpage....­

    Thanks and happy hacking!
    - Rich Menendez

    Excellent event. It was a good entry into understanding the developer's world more clearly. I had a great time beginning to build a site with my partner, Chris. My only small suggestion--name tags!

    HI! As a winner of the All Stars Competition I am in SF for the Google Engage Summit and I'd like the opportunity to come to the meetup. I hope there is still space for one more. My startup is building a new app and I am looking for developers!

  • Jeff

    Quick question - I left my computer at home today - will this be manageable?

    August 12, 2013

    • Craig M.

      More than likely that will be fine. Should be a fun event tonight!

    idea person but also can program native iOS. It'd be fun to match with a backend person who can hook the mobile into scala, node or ruby for the night. it doesn't have to be a product but just a fun experiment.

      Would love to connect on the event

    Craig, the guy who runs this, is a genuinely good vibe person. I'm saying this with a straight face -- (not straight as in sexual orientation but straight as in sincerity). I hope that everyone who comes to this event brings a lot of positive energy and is equally giving as well as taking. [unless you are into things like take back the night! but that's another matter! =D)

    the developers I have met at this event are also pretty classy and genuine. this is one of those nights that keeps me in love with silicon valley. there is more of the good stuff and a minimal amount of the negative stuff that tends to burn you out. a lot of stuff about the tech scene can definitely kill your passion, but this is one of those things that kindles it. I hope that the feeling can be kept here and the sponsorships can stay tactful. there is so much meaningless, insincere and cheap promotion and agenda going on today--events like this are a treasure

    please be nice to Craig! keep on building!

      Thanks for the enthusiasm! This will actually be the 16th protonight in SF! Formerly both the idea and developer RSVP's were on other meetup calendars, but I recently made meetup.com/Protonight to separate out the idea person RSVP's.
