Summer is coming to a close, and with that comes the return of the Hackathon! Bookending the Hackathon at, we have International Co-working Day and an after-party with the band Stink Bamboo.

August 7th, 2015 will be’s celebration of International Coworking Day. The public is welcome to come co-work for free throughout the day. Co-working situates you in a space where others from a variety of disciplines are all doing their thing. In the midst of this, conversations and connections happen which build on the unique perspectives of the people present. We regularly have members designing workspaces, managing email marketing, developing websites, and creating art. Join us for a FREE day of co-working!

Booze Allen Hamilton will sponsor the First Friday Hackathon Augusta PyNight, a combination Python competition and training opportunity. All Python skill levels are welcome (total n00bs to guru). Mentors will be available to help get you up to speed. We will have Python based challenges for all skill levels, as well as introductory coding lessons for folks who have never coded. We will have some network drops set up for you to use in the lab. In the N00b Nook, we will offer ~3.5 hours of Python training for absolute beginners to get you up to speed on using Python and start you down the path towards mastery of a powerful and fun programming language. The objective of this event is to enhance the local Python community’s expertise through fun, challenging problem sets, while also encouraging the growth of beginner Pythonistas via knowledge sharing from experienced mentors. PyNight is intended to be an exciting mechanism to advance your Python skills and foster collaboration across the local Python community.

*NOTE: Please bring a laptop with a version of Python pre-installed*

Local band Stink Bamboo will play at 9:30 pm for the after-hackathon party. They hail from Aiken and have an up-tempo, jazz-groovy way about themselves. Want a little preview?

Located in a historic 1802 Schoolhouse, our space is divided into two wings. One for learning and prototyping, and one for coworking and business incubation. Our membership comes from a wide variety of backgrounds that all consider themselves some measure of hacker, maker, and doer. I am an architect. We have entrepreneurs, business people, teachers, engineers, designers, artists, and Jacks and Jill’s of all trades, and of course many software and hardware developers.
