* Most hackers are into social good projects and non profit work - they just hate the restrictions and bureaucracy. Remember, say it ten times over and over again "People who build stuff are allergic to meetings!" I've been in situations where well meaning social good groups will block even a simple blog post update or site design page without 10 argumentative meetings  - remember, every experiment can always be rolled back!

* Dev Boot Camp graduates and students - if you send your student here, try to have them integrate themselves into the wiki / github as soon as possible. Hackerspaces flourish when people are building ideas and building! it's nice to talk about your life story, or about the job search, but this is an opportunity build something that exists outside of the for profit or non profit system just for the sheer fun of it. Even if you can't code, adding to the wiki and making creative things is generally the best way to go. You'll become a better hacker / coder / writer/ artist because of it!

* Hackers are generally open minded about religion but there are many atheists - if you are religious, please be diplomatic about proselytizing. It might be wiser to discuss religion as long as it's in a historical context or as a cultural and artistic force. Be prepared to have people question your religion or be into religious such as paganism
* Have fun! the focus is on fun. While you may be part of a crusade for greater good, your point of view is often fun. You don't always have to be serious!
