Hack the Tower - June 2013 (last one for a few months)

Hack the Tower - June 2013

A hack day for the technical communities in London. Its a great chance to build apps with other developers and discover how to get the most out of new technology and practices.  Bring your own projects to work on, or join in with others on their ideas.

Working together helps developers tackle technical challenges and techniques that are common regardless of language (github pull requests, using NoSQL data source, managing deployment, etc).

Read about the HackTheTower event in February to get a feel for the event.  See the Hack The Tower website for details on some of the projects we have been working on.

This will be the last Hack The Tower for a while due to the summer holidays and hopefully moving to a bigger tower :)

Rough Schedule
10.00am - Find the Salesforce office in Tower42, refreshments after your adventure
10.15am - Discuss your application ideas & how to build them.
10.45am - Split into groups and get going
12.30pm - Lunch time (sandwiches, queche, fruit and drinks provided)
01.00pm - Keep on hacking until you have had enough

Sign up

You need to register here on the London Java Community event, or if you prefer on theLondon Scala Community or London Salesforce community.  You only need to register once. Please include your your full name so I can organise a visitor pass for Tower 42.

In total, there is space for around 50 developers on the day. 


Important: Access details

Please ensure your full name is used when registering as this is needed by building security to let you in.

Finding the office in Tower42

As you enter Tower42, take the escalators to the building reception.  Upon giving your name you will receive a visitor pass for the building.

Go to the far right and go through building security, your bag will be scanned and you pass through a metal detector.

Once through security, take the escalators immediately to your left - following the blue path.  Walk all the way round to lifts and take the lift to the 24th floor.

At the 24th floor, get out of the lift and cross the hallway.  Take the blue lifts to the 27th floor.  Exiting the lift to your left you will find the Salesforce office

      I ask those with projects or ideas to give a quick overview at the start of the event, so plenty of chance to join in with others.

    Will be there with NAO again. This month it might be more mapping, improving the executor framework or vision

      There are some developers in France using force.com to drive robots, I'll try find out what they have been doing by the time the "Hack the tower" event happens in June. Thanks Dave.

    • Dave S.

      Thanks John, I'd be interested to hear about that. Hadn't thought about integration NAO with force.com - am open to suggestions.

    I am not planning to run the event in August as I'm assuming people are on holiday (and I could do with one too). Also we may have an office move, so not sure what office space is available and when. Hopefully we will have more space when I start these events up again in either September or October. Thanks
