What is it?
Tuesday Hack Night
is New Orleans' premier weekly gathering for programmers, designers,
hardware hackers, and other technically minded folks. It's an
aggressively unstructured way to hack amongst peers, converse about
the vagaries of this or that methodology of developmental arts, or
simply to partake of delicious libations in delightful company.
There's no agenda, no presentations, no requirements, and hackers and the hacker-curious of all levels are welcome to attend.
When and Where?
Our soirée happens
every week, on Tuesday, at 7pm!
We're generously sponsored by
a fine co-working space located at
400 Poydras on the 9th floor. Access to the gathering is via the
side entrance on Magazine Street.
To gain entry, tell the security that you are headed to Launchpad.
There are occasional special events and sponsored hack nights. If you'd like to ensure your punctual notification of such occasions, please join the meetup or register for carrier pigeon message service so that we might send you telegrams.
It's my first time! What can I expect?
Naught but merriment, hacking, and chatter from 20-40 of your
favorite kind of people, milling about between some handy desks, a
comfortable sofa, and the libation-purveying establishment next door.
You should feel welcome to come, sit down, and hack quietly amongst peers, or just as welcome to come, sit down, and argue about type systems.
Some of our most frequent members had a great experience when they first arrived with a question to ask: "What kind of database should I use for this project?", or "Why should I care about type systems?", or "I hear about this Ruby on Rails thing: how's it better than PHP?" These questions, and many more, can be answered for you by many of our attendees, often vigorously.
If you're shy, one of our fine greeters will be happy to introduce you to like-minded wizards of analytical enginery, or non-like minded, for the more pugnacious of you. Just walk up to one of these fine fellows and be greeted, and your first libation is on us!
