We’re focused on building community and capacity around technology in Windsor and Essex County.

What We Do

Windsor Hackforge aims to be the meeting place for technology professionals, students, and enthusiasts in Southwestern Ontario. We offer:

Networking

Shaking hands and passing out business cards isn’t the only way to expand your network.

Hackforge offers alternative networking opportunities in Windsor-Essex. Stop by a video game night and the person you beat in Bushido Blade might just be your next coworker. Answer someone’s question on our Discord server and perhaps you’ll find a new coding partner.

Community Development Projects

Hackforge believes in technology’s ability to improve our region and daily lives. For this reason, we undertake projects that give our membership the chance to contribute, teach, and learn, with an end product that makes Windsor-Essex a better place to live.

Past projects include QueerWalk and WindsorEssexCycling.

SKILL SHARING

Our region is home to very talented individuals working for many of the companies you interact with every day. We also have enthusiastic beginners excited to share their journey into the world of tech.

Through our free programming, everyone is welcome to share their knowledge and experience. With these events, Hackforge is democratizing tech education.
