Collaborate on Community and Civic Projects

Code for BTV Hack Nights are held every Thursday (except the third Thursday of the month). We welcome everyone to join us and work together to improve their communities.

Code for BTV Hack Nights are a great opportunity to meet and collaborate with others working on community and civic projects. Whether you are a coder, designer, project manager, or are curious about how you can get involved, please join us. We need a wide variety of skills, experience and perspectives.

If you have a laptop, you may want to bring it. If you don't have a laptop, don't worry—you can still participate.

Code for BTV Hack Nights are held every Thursday (except the third Thursday of the month). Looking for something to do on the third Thursday of each month? Join our friends and host Burlington Generator for their social mixer.
