OCHackerz Hackathon

Attn All OCHackerz 

Save the date!

It gives me great pleasure to announce we will be holding a hardware / software hackathon event at the brand new location of Eureka Building in Irvine. This will be a weekend event of fun and learning with the goal of creating a startup product at the end of the event. 

I'll be inviting all my favorite designers, coders and engineers that I've met along the way and you will all have access to their expertise. 

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will be provided as well as plenty of schwaag.

The first place team will receive a VIP tour of SpaceX! You'll be taken behind the scenes, where few have been, and see where and how SpaceX turns raw materials into rockets.

EarthMake will be holding a couple of beginner and intermediary workshops on Tuesday 4th February and Thursday 6th February next week so everyone can get an early hands on understanding of the technologies we will be using. 

Please register using the eventbrite at the link below:


Lyft will be providing $25 credit towards the cost of anyones first ride. Just download the app and use

    The OCHackerz karma is ON! We were blogged by Arduino and tweeted by Massimo Banzi on the arLCD and resulted in sponsorship request from Hackathon at the most prestigious engineering schools in the country. Help us put OC on the Maker Map!
