What's a Hackathon?
Usually what goes on is something of a social event, with people talking about all kinds of things, trying out some lock picking, playing video games, sampling bake sale delicacies and generally just having a good time. The original intent was to get the amazing SkullSpace community together to work on projects and bounce ideas around, but it has evolved from that into something of a geek social with a focus on learning something new. There are still a handful of people that come out to work on their projects and everyone is welcome to bring anything they're currently working on to show off or just hack on with others. Even if you know nothing about coding/hacking/etc don't be afraid to stop by, our members are all types of creatives from architects and programmers to graphic designers and amateur radio enthusiasts.
Who Can Come?
What is the cost?
Free, but bring some cash (or food!) for our bakesale!
When and Where
Hackathons happen on the third Saturday of every month, corresponding to the Global Synchronous Hackathon. Opening time is around noon, although most people don't arrive until 1-2PM. Some people stay 2 hours, some stay until 2AM.
The location is our Space - 2nd floor, 374 Donald St.
If you have something cool you're working on, bring it along! We'll have a room set up with a project where you can show it off!
Every hackathon we have a by-donation bakesale! Bring $5, $10, or $20 and throw it in our donation box, then eat all the food you want!
Or, bring in your own baking creation!
