Haven't done much hacking at Splat Space yet? This weekend is a good time to start!
The Hackerspaces.org Synchronous Hackathons are weekend long events that occur on the third weekend of every month. Splat Space will be officially participating in the Hackerspaces.org Synchronous Hackathon this weekend on Saturday, October 15 . Members and their guests are welcome to come any time throughout the day and join the hackathon. We'll be streaming video along with several other hackerspaces participating in the event worldwide. What The Event is All About (from hackerspaces.org):
"The Synchronous Hackathon is an event where each of the participating hackerspaces will work on their respective projects simultaneously, while in constant communication with each other. Video from each hackerspace will be broadcast to the internet for each other and the public to view. In participating with the Synchronous Hackathon, hackerspaces can utilize the motivational energy and skills of the participating hackerspace members."Some things we might be working on include:
- Getting the door arduino-powered system functional
- Setting up a web based subscription service for dues using Ruby on Rails
- Halloween-themed projects, costume creation, & candy eating
- Hacker movies in the background for motivation
- You decide!
