Joind.In: TBA

Hackaday: TBA

NOTE: All info posted here is TBD. We will have the final version a week before the event.

We had three conflicting themes for this upcoming meeting. On one hand, it’s Octoberfest and a lot of hackers love beer. On the other hand, it’s Hacktoberfest and a lot of hackers love improving code. Then you add in Halloween where we get to dress as a Prostitute Apple Newton and act like an ass-hat. So we decided…why not all three?

Please join us for a stuffed to the brim meet up with activities such as drinking our first ever DEFCON 201 Homebrew beer, doing git pulls for FREE T-Shirts, work on your Halloween outfit and more!

Centered right at the heart of the Journal Square PATH STATION with mobile accessibility, coffee and food, inside and outside areas and a passion for the hacker community we invite everyone to join us in welcoming our new venue and house breaking it in (but not breaking the house). BONUS, our venue is allowing us to BYOB so continue that tradition!

Again, if you like to do a talk at our meet ups our collaborate with our staff and members in a project partnership shoot us a email at:

$brew Open Source Beer — A Study of Large Scale Projects

:..>In Spring 2018, Firefox’s parent company Mozilla partnered with Portland, Oregon’s premier brewery, Widmer Brothers to make a beer. Widmer Brothers developed a recipe for called Open Sourcery, a 7 percent ABV, 70 IBU tropical IPA. And it’s completely open source on GitHub. DEFCON 201 took on this challenge and we brewed it ourselves with our own twist. This talk will go over how to brew your own beer, the triumphs and disasters of the process, how we created our own spin on it and how you can apply what we learned to your own project, alcohol related or not. After the presentation, participants of legal drinking age (21+) will be able to sample and enjoy the result of our literal homebrew.

Hacktoberfest 2018 with DEFCON 201

:..>What’s Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean and GitHub — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they’ve just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
