Come on down to NYU-Poly Incubator in Dumbo and code with friends. This is the usual format, just bring your laptop and beverage of choice and let's code or speak of code. If enough of us want to order pizza we will do it as a group. We will stay until we want to go home, late but not overnight.
There is no skill level pre-requisite as we are open to all levels and languages and everyone who enjoys programming is encouraged to come.
Last meetup we had a great Node code presentation for Eleusis, an educational card game (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleusis_(card_game)) , by Larry LeFever and it followed with a discussion on education and the possibility of putting together a team to collaborate and build an entry for the NYC Schools Gap App Challenge (http://nycschools.challengepost.com/). If you have any ideas or would like to continue the discussion, please show up or post a comment for this meetup.
