What we're about

We host events for and by software developers in Syracuse, NY. Our goal is to gather professional or aspiring devs together in real life to chat, learn from each other, and build out stronger networks.

We'll be organizing a mix of events not tied to any one programming language or framework. If you’re interested in hosting your own event, please reach out to the organizers and we’ll get you set up.

Aside from in-person events, we host a community Slack group. Learn more and sign up at https://syracuse.io/community

Book description:
"Silicon Valley gets all the credit for digital creativity, but this account of the pre-PC world, when computing meant more than using mature consumer technology, challenges that triumphalism.

The invention of the personal computer liberated users from corporate mainframes and brought computing into homes. But throughout the 1960s and 1970s a diverse group of teachers and students working together on academic computing systems conducted many of the activities we now recognize as personal and social computing. Their networks were centered in New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Illinois, but they connected far-flung users. Joy Rankin draws on detailed records to explore how users exchanged messages, programmed music and poems, fostered communities, and developed computer games like The Oregon Trail. These unsung pioneers helped shape our digital world, just as much as the inventors, garage hobbyists, and eccentric billionaires of Palo Alto.

By imagining computing as an interactive commons, the early denizens of the digital realm seeded today’s debate about whether the internet should be a public utility and laid the groundwork for the concept of net neutrality. Rankin offers a radical precedent for a more democratic digital culture, and new models for the next generation of activists, educators, coders, and makers."

OpenHack: Code together, on anything. 🤓️💻️🤘️

Needs a location

What we'll do

  • OpenHack is a casual social coding meetup with a simple purpose: Code together, on anything.

Here’s how OpenHack works:

  • You can hack on anything! Any language, framework, public/open-source, personal projects, client work… anything!
  • You don’t have to have an idea to hack on, you can come join someone else
  • We’ll kick things off with a quick round of introductions, to say who you are, what you’re working on, and if you’d like help with your idea
  • Food and drinks will be provided
  • Feel free to join us - bring a laptop, a project, and a friend!

We welcome local developers and designers of all skill levels, interests, ages genders, you-name-it to get together to write code or push pixels. We’ll provide good food, good people, and creative energy.
