About Event

calling all self-described (and aspiring ◡̈) builders, artists, engineers, creators, writers, designers, programmers, researchers & makers of all kinds: come to a space to make progress on your ideas.

​​​​to "ship" is to deliver progress, ​to deliver new features, or to get your work in front of people.

​​​​​​​​what is ship-it?

  • ​​​​​​​a space for driven folks to hold each other accountable to make progress on an idea they're working on

  • ​​this is the 2hr/week you get to work on what you're truly passionate about

  • ​​​​​​the project you work on can be anything!

    • ​​​​ex. coding an app, recording podcasts, CADing, making beats, painting custom shoes

    • ​​​​as long as it's something you want to do and not your main "project" (that means no school work if you're a student, no job work if you're employed)

  • ​​​​​​at the end, we'll have 2 minute demos for people to talk about what they worked on — completely optional, so no pressure!

​​​​what do I do here?

  1. ​​​​build

  2. ​​​​show ppl what you’re building

  3. ​​​​get feedback + iterate + meet mentors

​​the most talented creatives and builders often don't get enough time and support to work on their own ideas. we exist to create a space where they can do so, every week.

​​​​​"i don't think I'm creative enough to join."

​​​​​your starting point doesn't matter. the only pre-requisite is the curiosity to show up with an open mind.

​​to become creative, you need to create. ship-it is the place to start, to be inspired, and regain your childlike imagination and drive for making things & sharing them with friends.

​​anyone is welcome!

​​​​​​​why this exists

  • ​​we've been procrastinating too much on our side projects, despite having fun building them

  • ​​class/work takes up too much of our time. this is a recurring, dedicated block of time to work on an idea

  • ​​ship-it inspires us to make progress alongside other likeminded builders, and to keep others accountable for working on what they're passionate about

​​house rules

  • ​​​​​​PLEASE DO NOT WORK ON SCHOOL OR JOB ASSIGNMENTS! if you don't know what to work on, we can help you find something :)

  • ​​​​​​act like a host, include ppl in conversations, talk to ppl even if they're strangers, offer to help out and clean up

  • ​​​​please do not to turn this into a networking event...

    • ​​​​the best world is one where we know you for who you are & the stuff you tinker on, not exclusively b/c of the cool stuff you do as part of your job!

  • ​​​​​​bring snacks if ur feeling generous :)
