Monthly Hackathon: Hardware Edition

Monthly Hackathon: Hardware Edition

On the first Saturday of every month, Startup Edmonton is hosting a Monthly Hackathon at Startup Edmonton HQ. This hackathon is a little different than your average hackathon – they’re skipping the idea pitch/planning phase and instead calling on developers and designers to come with an idea/team in mind to challenge themselves to build something in a day.

This month, we are running a Hardware Hackathon in partnership with TELUS! We will have a number of hardware items to tinker with, as well as a few technology gurus on hand from TELUS. 

Items that we will have available to make projects with are:

Pebble Smart Watch 
Arduino 
Little Bits 
Raspberry Pi 
Bluetooth Beacons

To register, please fill out this form: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/monthly-hackathon-hardware-edition-tickets-13766835977

Note: as with any monthly hackathon, you’re able to participate in the monthly theme or just come in with your own software project to work on. 

If you’re looking for ideas or a team to work with, come to our Weekly Hack Night on Wednesday, October 29th at 6pm. We will have a few hardware items on hand to check out.
