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.)
- 9:00am: Doors Open
- 10:30-11:30am: Project Workshop - Metasploit Deepdive. How to hack the world with, and keep yourself protected from the Metasploit framework with facilitator John Robbins. Metasploit, a collaboration of the open source community and Rapid7, is penetration testing software that helps verify vulnerabilities and manage security assessments as you build tech-enabled products and projects.
- 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.
Are minors welcome? Hack Day is suitable for high school & post-secondary students. Younger children & teens are encouraged to check out programming at the Edmonton Public Maker Spaces. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or requests.
