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.

​​​welcome to ship-it!

  • ​​​​​Come between 6:15-6:30, hosts will be there earlier; please come by 6:35 at the latest, hard start at 6:40

​​​this week's agenda

​6:40pm - 6:50pm — host intros
6:50pm - 7:05pm — bay breakouts: what you're working on + what inspires you
7:05pm - 8:05pm — focused work
8:05pm - 8:15pm — dinner/hang out: you're encouraged to bring dinner (we'll provide light snacks)
8:15pm - 8:30pm — demos + closing, or hang out after :)

​​​​​​​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 :)
