Not sure if this belongs here, feel free to push it somewhere else if needed.

When i was at university we would sometimes come together into a room full of beer and fast food and crank out software in a weekend. Unfortunately the group has kind of split up and its just not possible any more.

My question is now: Where can i find like-minded people on the Internet that would like to do something like this? I have an idea what i wanted to do next, but of course other people have ideas too.

  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 even though this question is off-topic, because I'm also interested in something like this. If you live in a small town, it can be really hard to find the like-minden people online. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I think people are rather using Internet for this, nowadays. You can send screenshots and other things pretty easily, and talk using Skype. \$\endgroup\$ Nov 1, 2012 at 10:36
  • \$\begingroup\$ @MarkusvonBroady Yeah, but that takes away most of the fun ("a room full of beer and fast food"). \$\endgroup\$

I suggest searching in Meetup for a relevant group. I'm a member of two groups that are local to me and focused on mobile development. One often sponsors "hackathons" like you describe for prizes.
