Who are you?

We are a loose group of hackers (not crackers), often readers/lovers of Hacker News, that meet regularly in Paris to discuss a wide area of topics like Entrepreneurship, Node.js, Fundraising, Webdesign, Apple fanboyism, FabLabs, Clojure, Start-up stories, arcane C++ optimization tricks, BitCoin, ramen profitability, … you get the idea : whatever might be hot and interesting.

What to expect at the meetups?

Check out the recap of the first meetup!

We don’t have a specific format, but here is a list of short sessions that might happen:

  • Tech talks: Short talks about various tech subjects.
  • Tech demos: Got a hack to demo? You’ve got 2 minutes!
  • List of upcoming conferences: You won’t miss cool conferences anymore!
  • Beer & Pizzas: We’re hackers after all.
  • Top10: We open the current Hacker News homepage, and do live comments around each of the top 10 entries.
  • !Top10: Did you post a story on Hacker News that wasn’t picked up? You’ve got 1 minute to argue why it should have been!
  • French startups: Debate, advice, hiring, …
  • Anything else that attendees will bring, really!
