Monthly Hack Day

  • Startup Edmonton 10359 - 104 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 1B9 Canada

Join us for monthly Hack Days - time dedicated to building, learning and tinkering in a collaborative setting. Whether you are ready to build a new feature, want to improve your coding skills, or explore design thinking, Hack Days are a great way to get in the habit of building. Plus, it’s a chance to meet more members of the startup community, outside of head-down & focus work-time, and we provide loads of coffee & lunch. 

NEW: Taking a page out of the playbooks of some of our best community meetups, we will now have mentors on-hand to offer code reviews, pair-programming sessions, and answer questions. 

Requirements: Idea or project to work on (even a class assignment), software or hardware focused, all-skill levels welcome. 

Equipment Available: littleBits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Bluetooth beacon, RFID kit, and Leap Motion. (Ask Warren if you would like to access any of these resources.)
