Round 16: Ivan Drago went down in 15, but we're still going!

We're back at Meetup this month for Round 16! Thanks to Meetup for having us[1]!

The format of course stays the same: 5 minutes to show off your hack, and 5 minutes for the audience to applaude, cry, laugh, inquiry, snore, chew, stand, sit, dance, grow, interact, etc. But, of course, we hope that the audience provides lots of great feedback and asks interesting questions (probably while sitting, though dancing audience members are certainly free to participate as well)!

Show us what you've got! But, remember, no startup pitches, no work related projects[2], and no deckware! See you at Meetup!

RSVPs open 1 week before, so Monday April 2nd, at noon.

[1]: Meetup's event space is now on the 9th floor, not on 3.

[2]: Let me clarify the "no job projects" rule. We want to promote the projects that people do in their spare time, for fun, or utility, and not the kinds of projects that are only applicable to people who work in your company, or your direct clients. On the other hand, there may be a project that you've built primarily at work, that solves a *general* problem that your company has allowed you to release with a libre license--this is usually fine.

    I hacked up something last night that could be fun to share. Sent an e-mail to you, Andrew.

    Nic, Refuge sounds super-awesome! I, for one, can't wait to hear all about it!

    Hello, about pitch, I did send an email through the meetup site to see if I could present the project Refuge (not a startup ;) ... just a good old opensource project). But I never received an answer. Perhaps another time. I will enjoy anyway joining you tonight :)

    On that note, I am sorry for the miss understanding. I thought I fell under the second note. I have a full time job, and this is something I am excited about. It has been a side project of my for the past three months. Honestly I am not that great at speaking in front of people and I was told this would be a good place to start. Thanks for clearing things up for me.

    @Kennedy, as it says in the event description, "no startup pitches." From what I can tell your project is a closed source app that costs money. Hack and Tell isn't for this kind of stuff. It's for showing off stuff that you've made for fun. Usually just about everything is open source so that other developers can play around with it too.

    Awesome! You wanted to do a startup pitch!

    Thanks for getting back to me. Can I be a backup just in case someone doesn't show?

  • Andrew G.

    We've got a full roster, so that won't work out for this time.

    Just wanting to know if I can pitch my side project that I launched today?

    I have a pitch... where to email?

    April 2, 2012

  • Andrew G.

    As it turns out, there's been a bunch of cancellations from members saying they'll present. We have 5 presenters now, could use 4 more. Email us with your pitch!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
