If the term is new to you, a hackathon is an event where people with software development skills get together for a compressed period of time to accept the challenge of creating a piece of useful tech as quickly as possible. They are a great opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try something new or to put your normal work skills to the test. Many think of these as a marathon for the tech world.
If you have skills related to any part of the software development process, we want you! This includes, of course, programmers and web developers, but it also includes UI/UX designers, graphic artists, and project managers, to name a few.
We haven’t decided on a specific project for this year’s hackathon and if we have enough people register we might attempt two projects at the same time. If you register, we’ll contact you in January with more specific information about the project(s). Whatever the project(s), it will be an app for evangelism or discipleship, useful to the whole body of Christ.
Registering for the Hackathon means you will need to arrive for dinner Tuesday (5. February). After dinner, we’ll meet to kick things off with the goal of being done by 17:00 on Wednesday. Hint: Don’t expect a full night’s sleep Tuesday night. 😉 Also, because attending the Hackathon includes an extra night and three additional meals, it is €45 more than the standard registration fee.
