A MEET UP IN BIRMINGHAM

Taking place once a quarter, HydraHack is a free event for technical people to share ideas, techniques and learn from each other.

Each event takes a theme and we’ll hear a handful of talks and demos around that topic from specially curated guest speakers. If you've not come along before you'll find a bunch of friendly, passionate and chatty developers who love what they do and have lots of interesting stuff to share. New faces very welcome.

Next meet up

A lot of people are dedicated side project-ers. While they work at their day job, many developers have ideas floating around their heads that start to become a real thing during stolen hours here and there.

Many articles have been written about the benefits of having a side project; great for your career, learning, exploring more fun ideas that you can’t otherwise.

But, QUESTIONS: how do you get started? What makes a good side project? How do you have the discipline to keep making progress? What kinds of side projects do other people have? How do know whether your side project could be your main thing? What if you aren’t interested in that?

We’ll hear a few short talks from people sharing their experiences of working on side projects, and what interesting stuff they’re working on.
