At the hack nights, everybody can just bring anything they want to work on. There is pizza and drinks. At the beginning everybody says what they are planning to work on, so people with shared interests can compare notes or help each other out. The first meetup had 23 participants if I remember right, then there was a stretch with sometimes just over 10 people, but after a while it really picked up and now it is more like 20 people per meetup.
I have not always been able to write much code, some of these hack nights turned more into “chat nights” for me, but there's at least one side project, an advent calender built with Node/Express and ReactJS, that I owe to the hack nights, where people gave me some crucial pointers.
At the time of writing, the hack nights have been running for over 6 months, and are about to relocate from their initial home at the Engine Shed to the offices of Bluespeck Financial/Momentum Financial Technology - who sponsor the hack nights.
I am looking forward to the next half year, when the hack nights will actually take place in daylight!
