Join us for monthly Hack Days - time dedicated to building, learning and tinkering in a collaborative setting. Whether you are ready to build a new feature, want to improve your coding skills, or explore design thinking, Hack Days are a great way to get in the habit of building. Plus, it’s a chance to meet more members of the startup community, outside of head-down & focus work-time, and we provide loads of coffee & lunch.
THIS MONTH: You have the choice of working on your own project (same format as past Hack Days), or you can participate in Code Retreat YEG! We're partnering with Code Retreat YEG which is a full day of coding practice with other developers in town. Participants will pair program for 45-minute increments, and after every cycle people switch pairs and go again. The idea is to try different approaches and languages to the same problem along with meeting and working with a variety of people. All you need is a laptop configured with your favourite tools and a notebook! The problems - as well as food and caffeine - will be provided.

Still wondering if Hack Day is for you? Our advice is to come down and give it a try! For expert and intermediate level participants, it’s an opportunity to get feedback on your work and spend time on passion products. For beginners, it’s a great way to dedicate time to learn a new skill.
