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. 

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.) 

Schedule

9:00am: Doors Open

10:30-11:30am: Project Workshop - Crash Course in Android Development: Learn how to build a basic todo app and work alongside others to add fun features like list sharing and geolocation. Stefan Martynkiw, local Android expert, will be on deck to show you the way and help answer your questions throughout.

12:00pm: Lunch Break

1:00pm: Continue working on projects or attend a workshop

5:00pm: wrap up, high fives

Still wondering if Hack Day is for you? Our advice is to come down and give it a try! For expert and intermediate level participants, it’s an opportunity to get feedback on your work and spend time on passion products. For beginners, it’s a great way to dedicate time to learn a new skill.
