If you've ever visited Hacker News, you've almost certainly seen the "Show HN" or "Ask HN" posts. Well, it's time to get off the Internet and tell us about it face to face. We'll provide you with our honest feedback, you provide us with a great hack, or idea.

We'll give you 5 minutes to show off your tool, hack, library (did you just write a library to access the Meetup API in Go!?), whatever. We're language and software/hardware agnostic, so it's all fair game.

After you present, it's an open forum. The audience will ask questions and provide feedback. We want to enable as much participation as possible at these meetups, so you'd better be able to take criticism and dish it out (all within reason of course).


Our mailing list has a strict no recruiters and no promotion of commercial projects policy. If you think that your message to the list might not be appropriate, either run it by the organizers, or don't send it! Violators will be banned as soon as possible--no questions asked!

The Hack and Tell community has spawned some other interesting meetups:

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
