|Vancouver Hackers: I will be hosting a 100% free startup hackathon/startup weekend-style event October 8th through 10th at The Network Hub in downtown Vancouver.|
Other events want to charge $75 per person to attend but we think money adds a big barrier for many hackers (especially those in college/university). If you're interested and free that weekend, I've setup a simple form to gauge interest and see if we can fill up the space.
We will be working out beer and caffeine sponsors but everyone will be responsible for their own food/snacks. The location is right on the edge of Gastown, endless options for places to eat and drink. We're also above a 24 hour Waves Coffee and right across the street from a Blenz Coffee.
Please apply if you can come out for the whole weekend. You can pick up a new project or work on existing ones in a great environment.
I've had a quick chat with Colin Percival (cperciva) and he will be coming out on Saturday night to give a talk.
