Angelhacks 3.0 ๐Ÿ‘ผ

I'm going to Angelhacks 3.0 in Boston for a 24hour game-jam-style hackathon on May 27 & 28 and I'd love to see you there too! Registrations are still open and there's something for everyone, even if making games isn't your jam. If you're not in the Boston area check out the 12-hour, IRL satellites happening in Toronto, and the Bay Area on May 27th!


A new way to connect ๐Ÿค

๐Ÿ“ฃ Introducing an exciting new tool - the Clubs Directory! It's a platform designed to help Hack Clubs connect with each other and promote cross-club collaboration. Transcend boundaries and team up with hackers from other clubs near or far!

It's being built 100% open source and currently in beta opt-in. We're inviting you to join #clubs-directory and contribute your insights, feedback, and skills to this truly collaborative project! To sign up for the beta โœ”๏ธ
