We host workshops on a range of topics, from development best practices to project management methodologies. Please check back for the current workshop schedule.

Happy Hour

Bars and cafes are shut down, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy each other’s company! Grab your beverage of choice and socialize with fellow hackers following some organizational announcements.

                South LA


                Our South LA meetup was created by a community member on our leadership team.

                The mission of the South LA hacknight is to offer free technical education opportunities and facilitate user centered design and software development projects to improve civic life in the local area with local partners and stakeholders.

                This meetup is just getting started, there are no current projects.
