Monthly Hack Day – Edmonton

August 12

Join us for monthly Hack Days – time dedicated to building, learning and tinkering in a collaborative setting. Whether you are ready to build a new feature, want to improve your coding skills, or explore design thinking, Hack Days are a great way to get in the habit of building. Plus, it’s a chance to meet more members of the startup community, outside of head-down & focus work-time, and we provide loads of coffee & lunch.

Requirements: Idea or project to work on (even a class assignment), software or hardware focused, all skill levels welcome.

Equipment Available: littleBits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Bluetooth beacon, RFID kit, and Leap Motion. (Ask Warren if you would like to access any of these resources.)

Schedule

  • 9:00am: Doors Open
  • 10:30-11:30am: Project Workshop – To Be Announced
  • 12:00pm: Lunch Break
  • 1:00pm: Continue working on projects or attend a workshop
  • 5:00pm: wrap up, high fives

Still wondering if Hack Day is for you? Our advice is to come down and give it a try! For expert and intermediate level participants, it’s an opportunity to get feedback on your work and spend time on passion products. For beginners, it’s a great way to dedicate time to learn a new skill.

Are minors welcome? Hack Day is suitable for high school & post-secondary students. Younger children & teens are encouraged to check out programming at the Edmonton Public MAKER SPACES. Email hello@startupedmonton.com with any questions or requests.
