Monthly Hack Day + Tech t-shirt and sticker exchange!

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

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. 

Also, this month some community leaders are running a tech t-shirt and sticker exchange! Bring new or lightly worn t-shirts with tech logos to donate to other geeks, or come pick out some t-shirts and stickers from the stash. Any shirts remaining at the end-of-the-day will be donated. This initiative is part of Edmonton Startup Week which is on all week - create your schedule here!

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 a Startup Team Member if you would like to access any of these resources.)

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.
