What happens when you put 250 of the worlds most creative IT people in the room together for 24 hours?
What if you add food, drink and wifi?
You get a hack day!
On the 3rd and 4th of October to be precise!
Myself and Dom “The Hodge” Hodgson are planning on inviting you to the first HackNorth, we have managed to convince the guys at AQL to lend us an amazing building for a weekend and we along with a team of volunteers will be on hand supplying food, drink and generally preventing total anarchy. For those unfamiliar with a hack day they are a 24 hour code/design marathon you turn up, team up and build something for the betterment of mankind or to make drinking beer that bit more fun your choice! Prices will be awarded in a range of categories by the judging panel of our “experts”.
Why run HackNorth?
Dom and I have been planning to run a hack event for sometime and while both of us have organised marshalled events (Bar camps, rock concerts, conferences) this will be the first time either of us has taken on a 24 hour event with such a large number of people it will no doubt stress us both out, potentially ruin our friendship all so you guys can have the best time possible. Oh did I mention it’s a free event
so get yourself over to the site and sign up to the mailing list to be notified of when tickets become available.
