What we're about

Writing the next hot Android App or making a mundane Web App? Bring your laptop and hack away at your next computing project. Everything is welcome whether is traditional software development or administrating your personal website server. If you can do it on a laptop, than you're welcome to join.

You can both hide in your corner quietly typing away or sit in a group with your portable rigs on table and discuss your next big computing adventure.

This group has no focus on the type of technology being worked on, whether it's a basic web project or artificial intelligence or machine learning. Bring your ideas with you and share them with the group.

Non-hackers are welcome to join if they want to be thought how to code, we're all open for learning opportunities. Just ask anyone if they're willing to teach you new skills. If you're stuck on some tricky part of your project, ask your peers for help.

We will be meeting weekly in various coffee shops in the downtown area. If we get big enough, we can have groups in the suburbias of Ottawa.

Feel free to be late to the party or come in a bit earlier. Leave whenever you're tired at staring at your screen or have a more important date coming up.

Please RSVP to events even if you're unsure if you're going to attend. I may have to change venues if it's not big enough or too busy.

Ottawa Hacking Write In - Bring Your Laptop and Hack Away

The Ministry of Coffee and Social Affairs

The computing adventures continue on! Work on your own projects or help other people on theirs. Bring your laptop or just pen and paper if you're still early in your prototyping phase. Or just join in the conversation! The event is pretty much free-form and we don't have much rules in terms of how things go. Just courtesy and respecting other people's boundaries. If something goes wrong talk to me. The Ministry of Coffee and Social Affairs is 10 minutes walk from Bayview Station or right off the Parkdale Ramp exiting North. There's free parking on Wellington though finding a spot might be tricky.
