Hack night report

Yay by Daniel CattmySociety Developer Dave reports on last night’s get-together.

Once again, the Mozilla Space in London was home to our weekly Civic Hack Night yesterday evening.

It was good and busy, partly because the space was also hosting a meetup in preparation for Mozilla’s upcoming festival, better known as Mozfest.

Our mySociety hack night attracted friends old and new, including Lewis, whose “organ donor” tattoo has a Pledgebank backstory to it; and Ricardo, who may have been surprised to discover that he’s not the only Chilean we’ve been hanging out with recently (a shout-out to our friends at Ciudadano Inteligente).

It wasn’t all tattoos and chat though. We did actually get down to some useful work on Alaveteli and FixMyStreet — so thanks to everyone who came and hacked.

If you fancy coming along one Wednesday night, just add your name to our Lanyrd pages here, or drop us a line.

There’s no formal agenda: you might just want to talk about your ideas, or investigate how you could use our code / benefit from our APIs. Or maybe you’d like some guidance on how to jump in and fix an issue from one of our codebases. Or something else entirely…. Come along: we’re friendly, and we’re at the Mozilla Space every Wednesday.
