The Hacker in the Rye

Come to Stripe for a day of hacking and self-realization. Hack on a project, meet other coders, hang out, or just work on eating the food.

This hackathon will be very informal. Stripe provides the space and the food, and there will be plenty of Stripe engineers around for the day. You provide the project, or start one with other coders who are attending. Your goal for the day should be to walk away having built something cool. Past hackathon projects have ranged from building a simple PHP website to adding a new feature to Git to assembling a 3-D printer.

Beginners welcome!

    How could the Stripe hackathon been more fun? Perhaps only by facilitating a more carnal activity. But while concupiscence leads invariably to unfulfilled desire and the grief of mortal incarnation as it spirals against egress, the Stripe Hackathon provided me with inspiring new connections and an opportunity for learning & experimenting with others' techniques.

    Are there any Python programmers, and do you have any team plans? I really enjoy coding in Python, and I'm willing to work on any cool and exciting project. I also code in Java, but Python is preferable.

    What's the recommended laptop config/prep for this? Is there a quickstart path I can follow?
