The 12th Annual Indy Hackers Holiday Social

We are going back to in-person this year!

Please join us — a bunch of programmers, nerds, geeks, hackers — to celebrate the year with food, drink, and friends both old and new. December 10th, 7PM ET, we will gather for the annual Indy Hackers Holiday Social. We welcome everyone -- Pythonistas, Javanese, COBOLians, Scalanites. We might even have some functional programming zealots mutating their state for a few hours. The best part? It is completely free.

We're bringing back The Hackies in person, our awards for community members doing great work! The Hackies Awards are designed to recognize individuals in the community who are great promoters of inclusion, empowerment, and diversity. We will announce the winners at the event.

Register today!

Black Lives Matter

IndyHackers board stands with the Black community. Just saying we are allies isn’t enough. We owe it to the Black community of Indiana to do better. We commit to initiating anti-racist work within our community.

As a start, we have donated directly to Black Lives Matter—$846 for the 8m and 46s George Floyd spent suffocating under a police officer sworn to serve and protect him. (Here's the receipt.) Next, we are working to create and fill a new position on the board, a position solely accountable for Diversity and Inclusion in everything we do. We intend to fill this position with a member of an underrepresented group in our local community.

In the meantime, Andrew Robinson III (long-time board member who shifted his focus last year) has agreed to return to the board to guide and advise us in our efforts to fill this new position and to represent the Black community until the position is filled.
