Upcoming event – Disrupt NY Hackathon, May 2-3

There’s an event coming up which may be of interest.

TechCrunch has an annual Disrupt NY conference, and they kick things off with a good old-fashioned hackathon. This year, things are a little different; though the event has traditionally been software-centric in the past, tech blog Hackaday is joining in to bring more of a hardware twist to the event. According to an anonymous source at Hackaday (Rob T Firefly) their staff will be at the event, and will have a selection of hardware for participants to play with. Our unnamed source (Rob) and colleagues are looking forward to seeing someone from their community of tinkerers taking home the $5K grand prize.

The event takes place in Midtown and starts Saturday, May 2nd, continuing through the night to Sunday the 3rd. There’ll be food, beverages, stuff to play with, stuff to win, and a chance to tinker in a like-minded crowd. Free passes are available, thanks to a promo code Hackaday has arranged, but quite limited; if you are into it, grab your pass as soon as possible. More info on the hackathon is available via Hackaday’s post about it and TechCrunch’s full description of the event, and you can reserve your passes via this promo-code-populated link. Hope to see you there!

Yes, this NYC2600.net editor is affiliated with this event, but this post isn’t special treatment. NYC2600.net wants to spread the word about all the cool tech and hacker-relevant events in town, and all the cool projects our community members are putting their skills to work at! If you know of any, if you are involved with any, get in touch and we’ll help spread the word!

Upcoming event – SHIFT 4.11

Posted at 11:38 AM on 4-9-15 by Rob T Firefly

NYC2600 regular Jeremiah and his cohorts at Earthdriver.org are throwing an event this weekend which could be relevant to your interests.

SHIFT is an event centered around the theme of converging diversity. It’s a celebration of the philosophical and artistic wealth of our community, featuring music, comedy and critical information. SHIFT 4.11 will be hosted by musical host Gabriella Callender of Mahina Movement, with performances by Suga Bush, Comedian Julianna Forlano and Earthdriver. There will be wine and beer, a house masseuse, a community marketplace and 3 minute presentations between sets (each presentation featuring a different example of empowerment in our community).

SHIFT takes place 7PM this Saturday the 11th at ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn, NY 11215. For more info check out the event’s flyer on Earthdriver.org, and its Facebook event.

NYC2600.net is always happy to spread the word about local happenings which might be of interest to the hacker community. If you know of or are involved in any, let us know!
