Code for Philly Hack Night

Harrisburg University - Philadelphia Location 1500 Spring Garden Street , Philadelphia, pa 19130 (map)

Hey everybody! We're going to try to use Harrisburg University's dedicated entrance doors tonight. They're easier to access but harder to find - they're not marked. Look for them on the east side of 16th St. between Spring Garden St. and Hamilton St. The photo I added above with the pin is helpful as well. I should be there to let you in but if you have a hard time feel free to call my cell [masked] or ping @chucky_rox on the Code for Philly Slack.

Ready to hack for Philly? This is a no-frills night for projects to meet in-person and get some real work done. Code for Philly projects are all free, open source, and operate in the civic space. Sharpen your skills and help Philly at the same time!

New to Code for Philly? Hack nights are unstructured and designed to focus on working. Our other events have socializing components that give a better introduction to the community and what we’re all about. Create a profile ( and join us on Slack ( to be part of the conversation.
