Hacker League (a series of hack-a-thons)

So you've been to a hack-a-thon and thought it was fun, how about continuing the hacking over an entire series of hack-a-thons.

Welcome to the Hacker-League.

Hackers & Founders have been throwing around the idea of a hack-a-thon series, come along and find out how it's going to work and have your say during the planning session, once the League is sorted we'll split into teams and start hacking, easy as that.

So gather a team and get ready.

Hacker-League: We're going for a marathon - not a sprint :)

    I'm building a material tracking system on Rails. It's an academic project with a real client. I'm using this project to learn Rails and the coordinator is ok with the idea of getting help outside of school. Can I bring it to the League to get feedback?

      Yup, I'm sure some of the guys could give you some feedback on it.

    Hi, I'm a dev. I've attended a Hackers and Founders session a few months back and found it very inspiring. I am keen to meet people and help.

    We'll be providing a nice lunch of bagels on the day :) Does anyone have any specific dietary requirements ?

    Hi, I'm a dev, never been to a hack-a-thon. Dont have any ideas of anything marketable. But I'm keen to checkout what you guys are up to, and maybe join a team.

      Sweet, it'll be well worth it.

    Cool idea. Can I join a team on the day?

    August 28, 2012

    • Alex G.

      For sure, I think it'd be easy if we keep it pretty fluid, so people can drop in and out of teams whenever.

    • Rich D.

      Great! It'll be fun to just see what happens.

    Hey guys - what sort of venue do you require? one with tea/coffee, couches, benches and cool people? ;)

    August 29, 2012

    • Alex G.

      August 29, 2012

    • Lee B.

    Give me 6 months, and I'll have an interesting API for you guys to run a hack-a-thon with :)

    August 28, 2012

    • Drew B.

      Hint, it has something to do with my venture, and it will involve (obfuscated) data from retailers around the country.

      August 29, 2012

    • Alex G.

      Nice, we should be well settled and ready by then, so yell out when its up and well have a hack at it.
