Nothing says "hacking" like throwing together a last minute group coding session!  In solidarity with the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Hack Day, taking place this Friday (January 8) as part of their annual winter meeting, Code Coffee will host a hack day at the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research.  What is a hack day, you ask? It's about getting together to write code or work on some other project, *fast*.  It could be for science or just for fun!  You don't need to bring an idea to participate, and a range of expertise is appreciated (be it C++, python, php, or web design).  So grab a friend and come to Marlar for some snacks and coding!
