We have Saturday Hackternoon at Red Rock Cafe tomorrow.
The scheduled start time is 1pm.
I noticed that we have some new members so I offer some thoughts on
what to expect at Saturday Hackternoon.
I will show up about 3pm (2 hours after the start time) and put up
signs and perhaps hand out name tags.
We will be on the second floor.
Some of us prefer to be near the windows next to power outlets.
The last Hackternoon at Red Rock, however, collected us at a large
table in the middle of the room.
This room will be used by both Hackternooners and Red Rock customers.
A great way to make a new friend is ask, "Are you here for Hackternoon?"
A good follow-up question is, "What are you working on?"
If they are friendly you will find out quickly.
I want Hackternoon to be a place where people practice paired
programming and shared learning.
If you want to code-solo rather than partnered-up, that is both okay
and often done.
I've found the best way to find a Hackternoon-partner is via e-mail
BEFORE the Meetup.
Finding a Hackternoon-partner at the Meetup is usually a challenge but
has happened many times.
If you want to attract a Hackternoon-partner I offer some tips:
- Attach your photo to your Meetup profile
- Attach your photo to your hackternoon.com profile
- Post a project at hackternoon.com which looks both easy and interesting
- Wear a name tag
- Put a sign on your table which says 'Hackternoon'
- Send e-mail to Hackternooners you see at meetup.com or
hackternoon.com who look helpful
- Show up at 1pm and greet Hackternooners who you know.
Also look outside of Hackternoon and invite someone to pair with you
I look forward to seeing you at the next Hackternoon.
