London Hacker Forum

  1. 1. London Hacker Forum In beta! 30th June 2013
  2. 2. A writers retreat for hackers. What is it?
  3. 3. A retreat - a place to learn, try things out, make things Away from commercial and everyday pressure Time to immerse in a project or two Community of peers What is it?
  4. 4. How does it work? 1 week intensive hacking Max 12 in the group In the future, hopefully we'll run them for 3 months
  5. 5. Think about what you want to achieve Set yourself some clear goals and outcomes e.g. complete SICP, learn Scala, add a feature to Django discovering and exploring can work too How do you get the most out of it?
  6. 6. Be driven - have personal reasons for wanting to do this - expect it to be quite intense It's fun, but not for fun - aim to make "step change" breakthroughs that you can't reach in everyday life How do you get the most out of it?
  7. 7. How do you get the most out of it? Be prepared to share and learn It's social - the people make the experience Expect friendly social pressure - encourage each other to complete & ship projects
  8. 8. NOT for commercial work (that's for co-working spaces) bring things you can fail and explore on NOT a startup bootcamp (there are plenty of those) don't aim for commercial success, aim for personal growth Who's it NOT for?
  9. 9. Who's it NOT for? NOT an individual retreat be open to sharing, and being challenged NOT a taught course self-directed. set your own agenda NOT for complete beginners (there are other places to learn to code)
