It's Time!

We're excited to announce the inaugural SF Hack & Tell meetup where geeks present their projects to other geeks.

We're looking for 5 minute demos of something you've built or are working on and think is awesome. It's cool if it's open-source, but not absolutely necessary. Also, it's not fair if it's something you've built at (or for) your job. We're looking for side-projects of non-commercial awesomeness. That's what Hack & Tell is all about.

There's no special topic here, just sharing cool hacks that you think other developers will be interested in. And it needs to be a demo, no PPTs or startup pitches or anything like that - show us something that will amaze us!

We have an awesome place to meet (and food/beer) thanks to StumbleUpon. Grab a fellow geek and come and join us.

We strongly encourage contribution from members of the group - either by presenting, or in the short Q/A following.

Fill out this short form to let us know if you'd like to present, excited to see some amazing projects!

    Great meetup idea. It's always interesting and inspiring to learn about everyone's various side projects. Also a rare opportunity for developers to practice their speaking. :) Pete is a good organizer. I would have liked to see a final agenda posted somewhere (even after the fact), as I know the speaker list changed last-minute.

    Just a note that I'd have to squeeze in at least one (markerless-ish) augmented reality demo even though I'm officially listed as motion gesture hacks :) ... and beware these motion-gesture hacks aren't what i'd consider tech-impressive, but are hacks in that they're last minute viable entries to various contests

    Will you please post a [approximate] agenda/schedule of the speeches?

      Hey Mary Ann! Still working on a final lineup for presentations, but we'll have drinks/food starting at 7, and then start presentations by 7:30 for an hour.
