Join the Hackastory hackathon during !Flab // 2 & 3 may!

The subscriptions are going fast! Hackastory & !FLAB are still looking for creative coders and designers to enter the Hackastory Hackathon on the 2nd and 3rd of May in Gent (BE). Interested to participate and share your knowledge with others? Enter the Hackathon now!

Hackathons are great for experimentation and finding new perspectives on ideas and concepts. By building your idea quickly (rapid prototyping) you’ll discover the bigger challenges for the long run of your project. Besides the practical positives, it’s a great place to be. Generating a creative atmosphere with like minded dare devils is one of the crucial aspects to get something done.

Sounds interesting?

Goal of the hackathon:
…to experiment and to build a prototype for new way of interactive digital storytelling in 48 hours.

We offer:
…a comfortable place to work for max. 25 people
…to start or refine a project
…breakfast, lunch and diner
…a creative atmosphere

These following factors are essential for a great hack:
… you need to be open to collaboration.
… you’re not afraid to fail
… you find process as important as product
… you dare to dream big
… you will share the result open source with the world wide web

Good to know:
… participation fee is 50 euro’s (including drinks, breakfast, lunch (2x) and dinner)
… it’s all open source and we’ll share the results of the experiments
… to have a great hackathon you need a good mix of skills. So, there will be a selection procedure.
