Cereal and Code Hackathon - VentureSHOT

Eventbrite link: Website:

What is Cereal & Code

Cereal & Code is a Saturday morning for hackers to hack, with the bestest cereal buffet of your dreams, and some throwback cartoons like Tom & Jerry, Pinky and the Brain, and Wile E Coyote playing on a projector.

It's the grown up version of hackers watching Saturday morning cartoons.

What Will I Do?

Hacking, in this context, is actually building stuff. That can be developers, designer, UX folk. It's not "Hey I have a great idea and maybe a nerd will build it for me."

There seem to be a lot of events for startup people to meet, but sometimes hackers just need to get shit done. It's more fun to do it with a bowl of Frosted Flakes, throwback cartoons, and a room full of people who might already know how to solve that Node.js problem that is crushing you right now.

How Do I Know If Should I Come?

If you build stuff, have something to work on, like humans, and like cereal or cartoons, you should come.

Notice that we said, "if you build stuff." Yeah, that's right. We said it. If you're a "just pontificating about stuff" bizdev, this isn't for you. Real hustlers welcome.

Cereal and code is an event where hackers get together to work on whatever they want to work on -- personal projects, your part-time startup, your full-time startup, toying with a new framework, etc. Whatever it is, the ONLY stipulation is that you BUILD things.

Cereal and code is, hopefully, an event where people come, sit down, and get a lot of work done. Hopefully you'll meet other cool hackers who might be able to help you as you hack. We want you to meet cool people, but it is an event for you to work, not to recruit.

    Great event that focused on getting projects moved forward and sharing the results with other developers, coders, and designers. Great time was had by all and the cereal and other treats were great. Also the after-hours was great with beer, cocktails and building great relationships.
