Date: September 16, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 19:00
Entry: Free, but you MUST have a ticket!
Location: Container Solutions, De Ruijterkade 143, 1011 AC Amsterdam

Participation

At Stupid Hackathon AMS, we welcome participants of all backgrounds and technical abilities. We will provide entrance, food, drinks and a wifi-connection free of charge. In return, we ask you to abide by our code of conduct.

Before signing up, please make sure you are actually able to make it to the hackathon. In an attempt to avoid no-shows/non-serious participants, we will ask you in the sign up form to write a little bit about yourself and what tentative building plans you have!

Preparation

Important info

How do I get there?
The venue is wheelchair accessible and is near Amsterdam Central Station, easily reachable on foot or by public transport.

What about the day itself? How do I prepare?
We will keep you informed per e-mail about the day's schedule. We will provide coffee, tea, soda, snacks, a vegetarian lunch, and pizza and beer for dinner.

Do I need to bring anything?
A device you can do stupid things with.

Can I work alone or in a group? Will there be a prize?
We encourage everyone to work in groups, but if you'd rather lone wolf it, that's totally fine too. And there will be no prizes, because everyone who participates in a Stupid Hackathon is winning hugely already ✌️

Do I need to be good at programming?
Having some coding skills will make for a more fun experience. However, you absolutely do not need to work as a programmer or computer scientist to participate. Just bring a device and some dumb ideas. We'll set up a Slack channel beforehand so you can get to know people and see if there's a group you can join up with.

Who are your sponsors, and can I be one?
TransIP is graciously providing us with food and drink, and Container Solutions are our amazing hosts! If you'd like to sponsor our event, please send an email to stupidhackathonams@gmail.com πŸ’–
