HackHarvard HackNight – Bring your project, and be eager to start coding.
A number of students, including David Kosslyn, Eric Hysen, Tommy MacWilliam, Julia Mitelman, Peter Boyce, and more, have recently been discussing the idea of holding regular weekly HackNights at Harvard. We loved the energy and excitement that came out of the HackHarvard winter incubator, and we would love to keep that energy going throughout the school year. There are a lot of talented people at Harvard who are hacking on their own projects alone, or in small groups, and we would love to bring those people together and encourage more students to take on projects outside of classes.
Here’s a link to a draft of our HackNight proposal: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bKjKXnjvvdVmttXWfKEX11Uhh8c-JlsOXyt7-ZqCV5I/edit?hl=en&authkey=CIzQgI0L
What do you guys think? In particular, we’d like to generate some discussion around:
a) Is there interest in the community? Would you guys be willing to come regularly to these meetups?
b) What kind of event programming would interest you most? We have a lot of great ideas for stuff we could do, but at the same time we also want to keep it an organic meetup of people who love to hack together.
Keep in mind that we’re looking to develop a sustainable, regular program, that people will continue to come back for.
We’ve already gotten sponsorships to provide lots of food and snacks, and we’re working with David Malan to make MD available for these events.
We would love to hear from everyone here on [hcs-d]! We’re doing this for the benefit of this community, and we want to do the best we can to serve everyone here.
