OpenHack, as the name implies, is an open "forum" for all software engineers in the city to come together and work on any project they like in a hackathon-like setting. We usually start at 7PM and run until 10:30-11:00PM once per month downtown at Capital Factory, one of Austin's greatest startup and co-working spaces with a spectacular view of downtown. It's a great chance to get out and pair with others (or work by yourself), bounce ideas off other people, and connect with other developers in the city. Pizza and sodas are usually available thanks to generous sponsors, and folks are pretty friendly. Any project, any programming language, any platform, any reason - everyone who's looking to write some code (or pair program) is welcome. Take some time to work on that side project, learn a new skill, and make some new friends by coming out to OpenHack Austin.
