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.

We frequently see people learning and hacking on software projects using Java, Scala, Ruby, Python, Node, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, among other languages and hardware projects using Arduino.

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.



Panda Strike (http://www.pandastrike.com/) sponsors hack night regularly. Panda Strike is a consultancy focused on rich client, high-performance Web and mobile experiences and lightweight solutions for big data, primarily using CoffeeScript, Node.js, Elaticsearch, and a stack of innovative open source technologies.
