Event description

Description

Hack Nights are a time set aside each week for coders and anyone generally interested in technology to gather and hack, work on homework, or just hang out. We meet every Wednesday evening (while classes are in session) from 6:00 to around 8:00pm in WTC 220. Feel free to come for as long or as short as you want.

What does hack night involve? Do I need to “hack” on something?
Hack Night is an informal social event. It’s mostly an opportunity to hang out with other people around the RVC community who are interested in technology. Although many students use hack night to work on side projects (fueled by free pizza and soda), it is not a requirement.

I don’t know anyone in the hacker group. What do I do when I get to hack night?
When you get to hack night, you’ll basically encounter a bunch of people sitting around working on their laptops and chatting amongst themselves. Don’t worry: at 6pm, we do “geek me” and go around the room to introduce ourselves. During “geek me”, people usually state their affiliation (current student, graduated students, etc.) and what they’re interested in. If you’re interested in learning about a new subject, or if you’re working on a particular project tonight, or even just your homework, just say so! There may be other people in the room with your same interests (or even working on the same homework assignment!)

Until “geek me” happens, feel free to come in, take a seat, check your e-mail, and hang out.
