Hack the Tower - hack day

  • Salesforce London office. Floor 25, 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 build apps, deploy apps on Heroku, work with NoSQL databases, control some robots, 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 25th 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

    I regret that due to technical difficulties with the WiFi we will have to cancel the Hack the Tower - hack day event scheduled this Saturday, September 14

    I hope that our provider can resolve the current issue in the next few weeks and hope to run the Hack The Tower event in early October.

    Again my apologies if you had made travel plans that you cant cancel.

    Thank you

    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 time we organise a HackTheTower event.

    Please note that the Salesforce office is on the 26th floor of Heron Tower, not the 25th as stated in the event details.

    If you have any project or ideas you want to work on at the hack day, why not share them here and see if others are interested. If you are looking to try out something new, then sharing that can help you find others who want to do the same.
