Join us and hack!
After several weeks of demos and introductory hacknights, BetaNYC is carving out the next two nights for individuals and teams who have projects and want to work on them together. This night is designed for individuals or teams with advanced projects to code/hack together.
Bring your projects and code, and let's hack together! This night is for individuals or teams who have projects in development. If you don't have a project or code to work on, you might want to skip this night...

What is a hacknight?
A civic hack night is a safe space* event that brings together an interdisciplinary group of community makers** to meet regularly and collaborate on software and policy projects at the intersection of government and civic engagement.
* Safe space (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safe-space) – A place where anyone can relax and be fully self-expressed, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, age, or physical or mental ability; a place where the rules guard each person’s self-respect and dignity and strongly encourages everyone to respect others.
** Community Makers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maker_culture) – tinkerers, designers, software developers, data scientists, technical project or product managers, policy makers, lawyers, activists, non-governmental organizations, and government representatives.
Note: This hacknight operates under Chatham House Rules (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatham_House_Rule) to ensure free flowing and respectful dialogue between the public and government officials in attendance.
