Planet Hatch, in partnership with the Fredericton Developer User Group and the UNB Computer Science Society will be hosting a HACKATHON!
For the event, we will have local business and developers pitch their ideas and form teams to work on projects. On Sunday we will show off what we have completed and win some prizes. So come join us and learn about programming while having a ton of fun. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
The cost is going to be 20$ and will cover food for the weekend.
For those that are new to Hackathons, the rules are pretty simple: find a problem, develop a solution, deliver a minimal viable product (MVP).
We'll be sending out more information as the event comes closer, but in the meantime, please remember to:
- Bring a computer with your favourite dev. environment. (Be sure to include a power cable.)
- Set up a GitHub account. If you are new or rusty, please refresh on the basics before you arrive.
- Review the day's schedule prior to attending the event.
Help accelerate the next big idea. Your ticket purchase will go toward funding the next generation of coders and entrepreneurs.
