Join us for monthly Hack Days - time dedicated to building, learning and tinkering in a collaborative setting. Whether you are ready to build a new feature, want to improve your coding skills, or explore design thinking, Hack Days are a great way to get in the habit of building. Plus, it's a chance to meet more members of the startup community, outside of head-down & focus work-time, and we provide loads of coffee & lunch.NEW: Taking a page out of the playbooks of some of our best community meetups, we will now have mentors on-hand to offer code reviews, pair-programming sessions, and answer questions.June 13, 2015 | RSVP by June 11Mentors: Nathan Youngman, meetup host of the Edmonton Go Meetup
