Hack the Tower - hack day

  • Salesforce London Office - Floor 26, Heron Tower

    110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY, London (map)

    51.516335 -0.081110

  • Heron tower is close to Liverpool Street station and Bank underground station.
  • A hack day for any and all developers to come and collaborate on projects or simply discover new technologies together and enhance their skills.

    Whether you want to try new things that you didnt learn at University, build apps in an array of different languages, experiment with Raspberry Pi's, get to grips with Git & Github, trying out one of the NoSQL databases like MongoDB or Neo4j or make some some robots dance, there are plenty of interesting things to work on.

    Please note the Salesforce offices in London are now in the Heron Tower

    Based in the city of London near main transport links, its a great chance to discovering how to get the most out of new technology and practices. 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). Working together also helps draw from each others experiences and get more done.

    Rough Schedule 
    You can get into the offices from 9.30am onwards and have some breakfast and coffee, relax and take in the stunning view from the 26th floor of the Heron Tower.

    10.30am - Get together and discuss application ideas & things you want to try out. 
    10.45am - Split into groups and get going 
    1pm - Lunch time (sandwiches, quiche, fruit and drinks provided, requests taken) 
    1.30pm - Keep on hacking until you have had enough

    Sign up 
    Please include your your full name so I can organise a visitor pass for Heron Tower.

    In total, there is space for around 150 developers on the day. Food & drink will be provided, thanks to our hosts Salesforce.com

    Hello everyone,
    Really sorry to tell you that due to a telecoms fault the venue has no publicly accessible WiFi. Therefore We are planning to cancel the Hack the Tower event on the 14 September.

    We don't think MiFi's would work for 150 people as mobile phone reception is not great or uniform across the office.

    We will keep chasing our Telecomms provider and hopefully we will have public WiFi going for the next HackTheTower event scheduled for the 5th October.
