Hacker hours

Recently, I have been occasionally guest-hosting Hacker Hours at the Brooklyn Public Library on Sunday afternoons. It’s an event where people get together to work on programming projects, and help each other out by sharing skills and knowledge. It draws some seasoned programmers, as well as people who are entirely new to coding. The informal setting and the mix of skill levels makes for a good learning environment.

The event used to be at a café on Atlantic Avenue. But relocating to the library has meant that we’ve been able to reach people who may not have otherwise heard about the event. The library helpfully promotes it on their events page. So while I do miss the sandwiches and coffee at our former café, I think moving to the library has been a positive change. I recommend dropping by. Bring some code to work on.
