About Geek Night:
As some of you may know, we at ThoughtWorks have been organizing something called a ‘Geek Night’ for some time now. A Geek Night is an informal gathering where we pick a hot technology topic and proceed to discuss it and learn from each others’ experience and perspectives. The meeting takes about two hours inclusive of eating/drinking (soft drinks only *wink*) and heckling the presenters. We generally plan it on Saturday evenings so that our peers from other organizations can join us too.
The topics for these Geek Nights may range from cutting-edge technologies like JRuby to proven open source tools like Hibernate or Spring. And sometimes we indulge in Code Jams where we get our laptops in the room and go about solving a problem and discuss our solutions till the food is over.
