What is the age range of Hacker Paradise trips?
We strongly believe in diversity of all kinds, and age is one of them. The majority of our participants are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, but we’ve had people on our trip ranging from 18 to 60 years old plus a few families who brought their kids before. Our community is warm and welcoming–we all know age is just a number. But don’t take it from us, here’s what some of our participants have had to say.
What about male-to-female ratio?
As far as gender ratio, varies from trip to trip, but we do average a 50/50 split and it’s never further from 40/60 either way.
Another great way to see the people on our trips is to take a look at our Instagram, as all the photos are of and by people who travel with us!
How big are your trips?
Groups are typically 20-30 people. There is enough diversity within the group to find people who are interested in the same things as you, but the group is small enough that you still know everyone and the community doesn’t split into cliques.
What are the benefits of being Hacker Paradise alumni?
Honestly, the alumni network is one of the best perks that no one really understands until after they go on a trip. You are going to meet people who are your people. Knowing these people has a lot of benefits. When you join a Hacker Paradise trip, you become a part of our alumni network spread out across the world.
We stay in touch via our alumni Slack channel where we post jobs, banter about reality tv, and organize meetups all over the world. This year we’re even doing an “experience” meetup in Tel Aviv, Israel, but there are plenty of unofficial meetups throughout the year and around the world.
Alumni travel together, collaborate on projects, hire each other, and debate endlessly about useless things. People share resources about new cities or cool tech to travel with. They connect you with other people in their network.
