Dat Night is a monthly meetup in Portland, Oregon for people interested in discussing, dreaming about, and building the internet of the future.

Learn, talk, and make with others excited about the future of the internet, whether it's decentralized, distributed, peer to peer, federated, or all of the above. You don't have to be technical: everyone is welcome!

Dat Night is on hiatus! Stay tuned for more info about future events. Interested in helping organize Dat Night? Email us!
