Event Details

The Ballmer Peak is the mythological level of intoxication that conveys super-human coding ability.  That’s the premise of the Ballmer Peakathon - a 5 hour open bar hacking party for ridiculousness.

We’ll find fun domain names to get you started, then hack and socialize as we all drink our way to the Ballmer Peak.

Hosted bar and food provided.  This is a party, not a competition.

"This is one of, if not the most fun event I've ever been to"
- Joel F., Twilio Developer Evangelist

Who should come?

Engineers and designers who want to party and meet people in an engineer-friendly, 'business guy'-free environment.  


Please invite friends or colleagues that you would consider working with.  Leave out guys with "a great idea, I just need a CTO".
Sorry, but recruiters are strictly not welcome to this event.  


How can this be free?

Originate has the tab.  Just worry about having a good time.
