Who are you?
We are a loose group of hackers (not crackers), often readers/lovers of Hacker News, that meet regularly in Lausanne to discuss a wide area of topics like Entrepreneurship, Node.js, Fundraising, Webdesign, Apple fanboyism, FabLabs, Clojure, Start-up stories, arcane C++ optimization tricks, BitCoin, ramen profitability, … you get the idea : whatever might be hot and interesting.
What to expect at the meetup?
We don’t have a specific format, but here is a list of short sessions that might happen:
