What we're about
Hackers only. Bring your laptop and a project or tutorial to work on. Recruiters, spectators, etc. are not allowed.
What to expect
Expect to find people sitting around tables talking about and working on their own projects and tutorials. We don't have presentations or structure so bring your own project, tutorial, etc., introduce yourself, ask people "what are you working on", find a seat and get yourself set up, hack away on your project, and have fun.
Our members include beginners working through the Learn Code the Hard Way (http://learncodethehardway.org/), Code Academy (http://www.codecademy.com/), One Month Rails (https://onemonthrails.com/), etc. as well as experienced developers working on side projects.
