27-June: updated to emphasise the design aspect, because we'll have Magento's head of product design attending, on hand to help the teams and be one of the judges.
Sponsored by Magento, MageHack is a free, 24-hour development and design event in the heart of London - and is also the official kick-off of MagentoLive UK!
Free Registration: http://goo.gl/sGpk6t
The purpose of the hackathon is to provide a fun, community environment to learn and practice Magento development and design by pitching ideas - forming teams - building a prototype of a hack and/or a design - and sharing the results.
Open to all designers and developers, especially those interested in PHP and e-commerce.
This year's theme is "Simplicity." Build an extension to take something complicated and make it simple. Projects can be submitted in one of these 3 tracks:
* Simplicity in user experience / design
* Simplicity in workflow / process
* Simplicity in code
* Jonathan Atkins: Director, Head of Product Design, Magento
* Mitch Goldman: Product Owner, Made.com
* To be announced
