What to Expect: Breakfast will be served at 8am on Saturday and we'll get cracking at 9! After a brief introduction to the event, Subject Matter Experts will share problem submissions with you. Hackers will then split up into groups, choose a problem and get to work! The building will be closed at 8pm and will reopen the next morning at 8am. In the meantime, we'll provide you with food, schwag and some surprises. Sunday afternoon each group will have a chance to present their solution and the top solutions will win great prizes!
What kind of prizes? Everyone who attends is elligable to win a Burton snowboard. Winning teams will win GitHub memberships. Other prizes donated by Small Dog Electronics, Vermont Teddy Bear Company, and more!
Everyone's Welcome! Whether you program a little or a lot you're welcome to attend. This can be a great chance to stretch your skills and learn new ones. Community members who feel they can contribute, even if they don't code, are also welcome.
