Details

It's October: the best month of the year to hack. Sitting in front of the warm glow of a laptop, drinking pumpkin-spice Club Mate (that you made at home as a DIY beverage hack, because it doesn't actually exist), and changing the color scheme in vim so that your syntax highlighting mimics the golds, oranges, and reds of the leaves on the trees outside. Or maybe that's just me and you were bored one weekend and made something cool - whatever. Just come to c-base and wow the crowd with whatever you came up with! Pumpkin-spice-themed hacks optional, but encouraged.

WE NEED YOU - without your demos there's no show! We have 8 demo slots up for grabs, FIFO (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFO_(computing_and_electronics)) style.

If your company is looking to get in front of a bunch of developers, this is our cheat sheet to sponsoring Berlin Hack and Tell (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzNm8lbsIdcbU2VMTnRUVUVEejQ/edit?usp=docslist_api)

bhnt.rules

As always, we don't want to limit the kind of hacks. Demo cool stuff, no matter if it's an mobile app, website, desktop program or library. Anything is allowed, just cross the line to awesomeness - and if it fails it should do it beautifully.

There are not many rules, but:

• You'll get 5 minutes to present in English
• you or your team should have built it yourself
• people can ask you afterwards
• NO PURE SLIDEDECKS, no pitches, only demos + code
• keep in mind that the audiences is highly technical and starts snoring if you do marketing voodoo
• show us code!!! (reasonable exemptions may be possible)
• entertain us!
• You only show us projects you developed. Nothing "cool" you've downloaded from somewhere.

if( you.isSure ){ bhnt.rsvp(you, true) }

If you want to present, raise your hand during the event. And if you have feedback please send it to [masked]. Our relaxed event will only as good as everybody makes it. Bring your hacks and your friends and join us for the evening.
