NYC Tech Meetup - Code Crew @ Alley NYC
Last Sunday I went to Code Crew's Collaborative Coding meetup.
The event takes place every Sunday at Alley NYC. The midtown venue is a shared office space open between 12-4pm with room for 100+ hackers, power, wifi and kitchen facilities. A youngish crowd and a relaxed, friendly vibe, there are no presentations or planned activities - just turn up and hack solo or chat with people and code together. Most people I met were budding Ruby programmers from a local college. I really enjoyed it and will be heading back there frequently (including tomorrow). If you're heading down to Alley NYC drop me an email if you'd like to chat / hack Perl.
N.B. Hacker Hours are another meetup group that uses the Alley NYC space on Sunday at the same time. I didn't notice any distinction between the two groups.
