Hot on the heels of the last DevHouseDC, it’s time to gather again!
The next DHDC will be on Saturday, June 4 from 12pm – Midnight. We’ll be hosting at the infamous think tank Sunlight Labs! Opening the government one line of code at a time. This is a downtown DC location, 2 blocks from Dupont Circle metro station.
Spend the day geeking out on whatever it is you do, sharing your excitement and knowledge with others, brainstorming, and meeting other DC geeks. If you like to like to code, craft, compose, compile, commune, create, collaborate, cogitate, communicate, or even just build Legos, then we have a place for you! Physical projects– puzzles, electronics, structural engineering experiments, chemistry (please no hazardous substances), etc.– have a place here too. As usual, Lightning Talks will be held mid-evening– and then we all go back to our projects.
Dinner (vegetarian & meat options) will be ordered and with an expected suggested donation of $10. Some drinks and snacks will be provided. Additional contributions of drinks and/or homemade food items (creative projects in and of themselves!) are encouraged. Pursuit of the Balmer peak is acceptable but please remember this is an all-ages and family friendly event. Read more about DHDC here.
If you haven’t already, please RSVP at EventBrite!
Special thanks to Sunlight Foundation for being our generous hosts– not to mention all around bad-ass hackers.

The next DevHouseDC is ON! Join us Saturday, December 4th, noon-11pm
Come to code, craft, and create. Bring your laptop or other gear, your brain, and we’ll provide wifi and food. Present cool stuff during the five-minute Lightning talk sessions. Meet other hackers and thinkers, and hang out with friends. (in fact, why not invite some!!)
It’s not your regular party (but it’s fun), it’s not a conference (but you’ll learn something), it’s not a networking event (though you’ll meet cool people).
