MoMA is typically super crowded whenever you want to go so this is a good opportunity to see stuff without the crowds.
I’ve been doing yoga and it’s kinda dope so I think everyone should try it out. Free yoga is hard to come by so if you can get up this early, will save you a good $25

Learn about Knative and its usefulness.

Not really sure how this works or how easy it is to drop-in but the idea is that it’s a community-sourced incubator. Could be a cool thing to get involved with if you’re thinking about building a company / are interested in the space.
From the event:
If you’re looking to get a little rowdy this Wednesday, then this is for you. Dirty Circus is a recurring HoY event where they do wilder-than-usual things.
Learn about JAMstack and build your own site using it in this interactive session. This is exciting because this is how I currently run my sites (read more)!
location: Kips Bay
Learn about career journeys in tech from the perspectives of black Americans. Get a glimpse inside the Digital Ocean offices (I hear they’re dope). Get the chance to run your code / resume by Digital Ocean engineers.

My progressiveness is showing. I’ve never been to an issue launch before so I don’t really know what’s going to happen but I’d imagine they’re going to talk about stuff.
Like many of the popular event spaces in Bushwick (think Elsewhere Space, Lot 45, and House of Yes), Knockdown Center tries to position itself as a focal point of artistic expression and community beyond a simple show destination. One way they do this is by housing rotating collections of art from local artists and beyond.
Art exhibitions / openings are always hit or miss for me, but this could be a good excuse to go out to Bushwick early then hop around to local digs like The Rookery or Clabrije’s.

I’ve never been to a TEDx but I watch them online sometimes. Pretty steep pricing but could be worth it if you’re tryna be academic / learn some things.

HackItTogether is running an all-women’s hackathon this sunday. If you’ve been at all interested in learning more about code / building something yourself, I’d highly recommend trying out a hackathon. They’re a great way to meet up with other people trying to learn / build and you usually get some food out of it. You also help support gender equality in tech so that’s a plus.
Play indie multiplayer games produced by local developers.
