Hacker Paradise started off as a side project in 2014. We (Casey & Alexey) had begun to travel, and while the nomad lifestyle was great, we felt we were lacking the intellectual stimulation and support that we’d found in tech communities in NYC, SF, and Tokyo.
Thus, we decided to create the community we were craving! Our first trip was to Costa Rica in September of 2014, and since then we’ve had 483 people join us in places like Vietnam, Bali, Thailand, Estonia, Barcelona, Berlin, Portugal, Tokyo, and Taipei. We’ve grown into a robust community, with alumni hailing from 51 countries around the world.
Why come on a Hacker Paradise trip?
We take care of accommodations, workspace, and community so that you can hop off the plane and immediately be productive. We also put on a number of professional development events, including demo days, hackathons, and meetups with the local tech community.
In the past, some of our guest speakers have included Leo Widrich (co-founder @ Buffer) in Berlin, Taavi Kotka (CIO of Estonia) in Estonia, and Matz (creator of the Ruby programming language) in Japan.
