Can I attend?
Even if you’ve never been to a hack day, or aren’t tech-focused, you’re absolutely welcome.
How it works
→ Drop by our Slack group and say hi.
→ Browse some hack ideas on GitHub.
The day starts with a Zoom call. Details of this are posted in the #general Slack channel just before we kick off.
We’ll have a very informal set of introductions, and discuss what people are interested in working on through the day.
10am → 12.30pm
Your time to hack - work on whatever you want.
Grab something to eat, join everyone on Zoom if you’d like.
1pm → 4.30pm
More hack time - finish off things, or do something entirely different
We all get back on Zoom and chat about how our day went.
If you’d like to share; we’ll have time to show demos of what we’ve worked on.
Tools we use:
Slack is a chat application. We use it as a central place for sharing messages/links/info - you can login at any point, there's usually a few people online.
You can use it from your web browser, or they've got downloadable apps if you'd prefer.
GitHub is a tool for collaborating on software projects. We use it to discuss hack ideas.
Don't be put off if these sound technical, we're open to all skill levels!
Zoom is a video conferencing application.
We use this for a more face-to-face chat with everyone. (Though if you want to keep your webcam off, that's cool too).
