| ||Ask HN: Socialize to make software|

|I live in Russia, in a small town, not in Moscow and not in St. Petersburg.|
There are too few passionate programmers around me who are good enough and who want to work for free or at least for food first time, or to take part in hackathons for making and prototyping ideas and making great product.
I'm looking for opportunities for my personal and professional growth. I want to find friends and partners in the USA to build software and hardware together and run startup company in the USA. Just because I think the USA markets are huge in the comparison to russian markets.
I think, changing the location could open up some benefits, though it has disadvantages too.
I have for now B1/B2 visa, but I have no ideas where to go and what community to meet or join in the USA for the first time to make good networking related to tech entrepreneurship and making software. And how to create reliable relations to expand them when I'll go back.
So, what would you do if you was me? Try to make success story here or change location?
Thanks for help, HN
