What we're about

Geek.Zone is the place to meet like-minded geeks in Chelmsford through events, projects and activities!

We are a community of individuals who are proud to call ourselves geeks. We feel that it is good, even great, to be passionate, to be knowledgeable and to be able to make the world a better place.

Our geekery comes in all of its glorious forms, from Computers to Comics and from Physics to Fabrics, we love it all.

Geek.Zone/Chelmsford is part of the Geek.Zone community. Once you have been to a few events, we ask that you join Geek.Zone so that you can enjoy being part of everything that it has to offer. Membership is just £1 so get involved! This gives you access to the forums, blogs, knowledge base and more!

We often have joint events with the other Geek.Zone Districts in Coventry & London. You will always have the chance to meet awesome new geeks.

So if you are a geeky girl or a geeky guy, and want to have fun with great geeks, jump in! If you like what your GeekZone does, please support it generously

Virtual Pint Night: Games & Friends from a Safe Distance!

As per Government direction, all Geek.Zone events are being held online wherever possible. Join us in the "pintnight" voice channel on our discord! http://geek.zone/discord Join us in a celebration of reaching the end of the week for geektastic times at our virtual pub! Our Pint Night is a great, relaxed way to make new friends and catch up with old ones. During the lockdown, it's BYOB too! We will play a few games and have some interesting nerdy discussions. Be there or be an equilateral equiangular quadrilateral! Future Geek.Zone events: if you have an idea for a future GeekZone event this is the perfect opportunity to do some planning and discuss it with other members of the group as you will find many of the active GeekZone members at the weekly pint night. Geek.Zone relies on donations to fund the activities it carries out such as equipment for retro games(console) night and having a group on MeetUp isn't free either so if you would like to help out GeekZone please go to http://Geek.Zone/support and make a donation. Buy your tickets for the quiz via Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/geekzone-virtual-pint-night-tickets-103632979030

HackLab: Sunday Code Club #meetandcode

Online event

Want to improve your coding skills? How about building something that the entire Geek.Zone community will use? Are you desperate for more devs in your life? Would you like a professional reference too? Come to HackLab, our weekly software development group where we talk about all things code. We are particularly eager to progress all the projects that Geek.Zone is working on - see our Trello at https://trello.com/b/QEXZPnUb Due to public health concerns, we will ONLY be meeting on the "dev" voice channel of our discord until further notice. https://geek.zone/discord PS Wondering what the event image is? It's a Glider from Conway's Life. Eric S. Raymond has proposed the glider as an emblem to represent the hacker subculture.
