Hello Devs - Ginny H. is heading up this project, and I think it's going to be an awesome tool once it's done, if you want to help make something useful for the group, this is a chance to get your hands dirty and start from the beginning. Of course, if you just want to come hang out and work on your own projects you are more than welcome to come to hack night and just be with everyone as well. Hope to see everyone there! Below are the details of building our app. We'd like to provide a weekly list of local tech news to the group with upcoming meetups and conferences but it's a chore to do manually. We're developers, though, so we're going to write an app to generate the event list. At this hack night, we'll get started planning the project by defining the initial requirements and reviewing the data available. Then in future hack nights we'll develop the app. We'll probably use the meetup.com API to start and then continue with conference data from lanyrd.com. All are welcome including beginners, no matter what technology you work in today.
