Come to Code for Milwaukee's Hack Night! Hack nights are a great way for anyone (technical or non-technical) to come together and work on solving problems affecting our local community. Whether you are coding, designing, strategizing, or something else you are welcome to attend and collaborate!
Please bring a laptop! You can also bring guests along to join in on the action.
NOTE: Change to the featured guest. Unfortunately, Dr. Kowalik will be unable to join us for this hack night, due to an abrupt scheduling conflict. However, we are very excited to be featuring Tarik Moody as our guest speaker, who will discuss digital innovation and some upcoming opportunities to "hack hunger."
