Hack day, hackathon, code marathon... whatever you call it, come spend the weekend building something cool with us.
There are two main prizes — one for "Automating ALL the things", and one open prize with no specific criteria. We ask all attendees to open source their code at the end of the event — this will allow others to view and modify your source code, so they can learn from it and adapt it to their needs. We will have a list of projects and links to the source code once the hackathon is over.
Digistump have been kind enough to provide us with some Digisparks for prizes for the event, these are tiny development boards similar to arduinos. We're also lucky enough to have been sponsored by Linode, who are offering up a 1GB VPS to one lucky winner! In addition to all that, Eysys have kindly offered up a cash prize which is to be split between the teams who come up with the most marketable project. There are more prizes to be had - these will be announced on the day!
- Cardiff University School of Computer Science, Seminar Rooms 1 & 2. There will be signs directing you to the right room.
- Anyone can come, all are welcome. You can register as a team or as an individual and we can put you in a team on the day. If you are not at Cardiff we would love to hear from you — we could video link over the two days.
- Try something new, hone your skills, collaborate with others... and it's all for the good of mankind — everything we build will be open sourced at the end.
