Monthly Hack Day

  • 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. 

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.) 


9:00am: Doors Open

10:30-11:30am: Project Workshop - Introduction to 3D Printing. This session will be a hands-on overview of the basic elements of 3D modelling and printing including some tips and tricks for your next DIY project! Be sure to bring your laptop to participate! 

12:00pm: Lunch Break

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

1:00-3 :00pm: Free Code Camp Meetup 

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.
