Will there be any Passover-friendly food provided?
I second that for the catholics, no meat! Kosher pizza?
Third for us vegetarians!
Don’t worry — we ordered vegetarian options for every meal.
Man, I’m a CS major, but I’m still a total noob at coding. Hopefully I don’t get embarrassed. =x
We also picked up a set of Passover-friendly snacks. See you at the hackathon!
I`m stocking up on energy drinks for sure.
Sean: I`m a Biz major that knows CSS, HTML and some RoR but that’s about it. So I guess we`re in it together.
Anyway can`t wait to see how this event turns out, nonetheless super excited to meet other like minded people at the first @HackNY. Check out http://bit.ly/b4RJoN for some useful advice from Fred Wilson and Seth Godin on topics that I think are relevent to this meetup. And if you wanna talk at the event hit me up on @WesleyRoss or PM on Facebook.
I think I might give New York another try for a job or team or just general searching again. I was really considering leaving it and pursuing options in DC or CA. (I have worked in NYC [manhattan or brooklyn] since 2005, but left in 2008) — I’m 22 and have a lot of startup and programming experience (PHP, mysql, anything on linux source).
Besides the point: –> I’ve been interested (well, temporarily obsessed) with messaging technologi-es mainly XMPP and Etc for the last couple of years (2 almost) working on experimental research in cross domain and realtime protocol design for web pages (basically you IM a page over xmpp and you can work with the dom tree to update or add content or otherwise do stuff with the page). Great ability there for live analytics or browser control / central metrics and data update streams of users to a central server too.
I am mainly looking to find a better workplace environment, as well as a younger and more similar group to myself — I like the younger crowd that I see here, hackny.org hasn’t given off any negative impression or thought to me so far; I’m really glad it’s in new york….. it’s the best thing i’ve seen here possibly (you know; within context)….. But really; yeah…
Also I am impressed with the fact that most “Startup” and “web 2.0″ things, groups or events or people come off (imo at least?) “braggy” and arrogant at times? Well nothing has turned me off that I’ve seen from all the HackNY content I’ve poured over in the last few days (and pictures, videos, and general reading). The group looks really good and organized (and with good intent).
Thanks to our 1337 Sponsors, Palantir and the Yahoo! Developer Network!
