Progressive HackNight

January 30 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

This hacknight will be a no-speaker hacknight so it’s full-on hacking / learning. Start a new breakout group or meetup with an existing one. Feel free to use the space provided to us by ThoughtWorks NYC. Our directors and organizers will be available throughout the hacknight to provide support, collaborate, or a sounding board for your projects. Help us reserve a space for your group by announcing your breakout group.

About Progressive HackNight

We’re all about making great ideas happen.

Progressive HackNight is a bi-weekly gathering of coders and creatives, makers and doers, to foment and inspire action. We use our collective talents and abilities to push forward pro-social change in benefit of the common good.

An intersection of technology and activism. A physical space for progressive activists, organizers, data wranglers, ux/ui designers, and coders to come together, discuss the issues, and work on projects together that will drive the movement forward.

This event is open to technologists, organizers, data enthusiasts, ux/ui, creatives, project managers, product managers, coders, etc, of all backgrounds/experiences.
