Of course, every event, and community, will be different. But here are some tips we’ve picked up:


  • There will always be earlybirds. Make sure you’re ready at least half an hour in advance.
  • Attendance: As with any free meetup, typical attendance is about 20-50% of signups. Our first meetup had 40 RSVPs, and 15 showed up. That’s cool! It’s good to build a core group.
  • There may or may not be interpersonal conflict. We work hard to keep our community and events positive, but sometimes, someone is having a bad day. Check our our Code of Conduct, and email hi@hackster.io if there’s an ongoing issue.
