If you are new to the community, join us for Onboarding Night! We offer Guided Onboarding on alternating Mondays and Tuesdays on our Getting Started page.


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.

Online Project Team Meetings

We have teams that meet at various times. You are welcome to attend a project team meeting after you have completed Onboarding, and if the team currently has an open role. You can find open roles at the end of the Onboarding.
