What we're about

Great news! Dallas has been chosen as Brother Hackathon location for our 2019 season. After a successful hackathon in Los Angeles, California in 2018, we have been seeking a great city for our 2019 event. Among 10 cities, Dallas is selected unanimously by our committee. This meetup group is set up to:

1. Find co-organizers, assistant organizers, event managers and volunteers

2. Each month we will hold at least 1 live event in Dallas, including workshop, showcase, seminars, and happy hours

3. Allow members to register the hackathon event with priority


Hackathon: From 6PM April 26th through 9PM April 27th (27 hours)

Workshops/Seminars: January (2 events), February (2 events), March (3-6 events), April (2 events)

The meetup group will officially launch in January 1, 2019. Accepting members now. 100% free, and will ALWAYS be free.


iOS and Android developers. UX/UI Designers. Web developers. A team can be a single member, or up to 3 members.


Hackathon, Workshop, Seminars, Showcases. Hackathon is to build an iOS or Android app that utilizes Brother International's mobile printers. One or more printers will be provided to each team for testing purpose. These printers are free to keep after completing the event.

All our events are 100% free, with free food, drinks, prizes, and everything. All meetups will be focused on the hackathon event. There is no commitment, just plenty of fun learning and competing among members/friends.


Venue to be determined (please contact me if you have a great venue that can accommodate 100-150 people)
