20:00 pm ~ 21:00 pm
Jonge Roelensteeg 12 - 1012 PL Amsterdam
We are a small group of hackers who meet up to discuss startups and code over a social smoke in the famous coffee shops of Amsterdam.
So whether you are hacking away on a small side project or building the next 'Big Thing', if you enjoy coding and relaxing with a joint with like minded people, this is the meetup for you. We meet up once a month at a different coffee shop voted for by the group - with good herb and nice ambience being the crucial deciding factors!
We welcome hackers of all sizes and shapes, whether you code in PHP, Rails, Python or even dabble in Node, as long as you are passionate about programming, startups and of course sweet Mary Jane!
Our next meetup is at Abraxas, Jonge Roelensteeg 12 - 1012 PL Amsterdam on Thursday March 28th.
Our monthly meet up is a chance to get to know your fellow hackers and hopefully you'll have the chance to:
Share and discuss new start up ideas and hopefully find an idea that catches your interest (if you don't have one already!).
Find someone to help you build your MVP and/or constructive feedback from the group on your project.
Give a talk about a hot new technology or maybe just sit and learn something new from the group.
Get involved in our hack days, form a team, find a cool idea and race against the clock to build it!
Geeky chats about all things code related. Maybe you'll find someone just as passionate as you about Lisp!
Get advice on launching, marketing and other questions about your startup from our talented group.
Exchange tips on how to juggle work, relationships, social lifes and basically stay a healthy hacker!
Chance to meet new hackers. Expand your social circle... and just another excuse to blaze your head off!
Frequently Asked Questions
To make the process as frictionless as possible, we've decided not to have any fancy registration forms. If you fancy joining us for our next meet up, then please make your way to the advertised location on the advertised date and we'll see you there!
The number of people vary with people's commitments and prior obligations on a monthly basis. The idea with this meet up was always to keep the size of the group quite small. We feel that this has two big advantages, firstly it's a little less intimidating for newcomers and secondly the small sizes are more suitable for the space available inside coffee shops!
There's no compulsion, but given that most of our members join because they have at least a passive interest in smoking, you'll probably find that the majority will do. Of course don't let that stop you from coming if you're happy enough to be in such an enviornment.
The idea was to experience different coffee shops in Amsterdam so there is no regular meeting spot but if we find a coffee shop with great ambience and a fine selection of Marijuana, we're more than happy to make it a regular spot. For now however, feel free to suggest a good coffeeshop and it will be put to the vote.
Of course you can, as part of our meetings we talk about start up ideas and people share their weekend projects or the project they have been hacking away at. If you feel that what you're doing will be of interest to the group, feel free to bring it to our attention, you can contact us at the bottom of this page!
Whilst we want to maintain a healthy level of technical discussion and most of our group are programmers, we are more than happy to welcome anyone interested in the the overlaps of our group. So if you're the 'biz' guy without coding chops, or you just really enjoy sitting back and smashing ideas together you're cordially invited to our next meet up!
Feel free to e-mail us if you have any questions
