What's a better thing to do on summer weekends than counting sand grains at the baltic sea or enjoying a lazy day at the lake? Right: Getting your hands "dirty" on code, learn something new, improve your skills, team up with other developers to build something together. That's why we're hosting the very first coding leipzig hackathon for you!
It's running the whole weekend (Aug 3 - 4), giving you the chance to go wild on code, evaluate and exchange your ideas and grow as a developer by learning from and collaborating with other coders. We've prepared an event website on hackathon.com: https://coding-leipzig-19.hackathon.com that has all the details. Please sign up there if you want to be part of it.
Here's the rough agenda:
Saturday Aug 3rd
09:00 doors open at basislager
09:30 breakfast & wakeup meditation
10:00 hello hello. Why are we here?
10:15 Robert - platform.sh: the Idea-to-Cloud application platform
10:30 Jonas - building and deploying an app within minutes + how to use platform.sh services
10:45 Stefan - a 15 minute walkthrough of the current coding.earth hub and its microservice architecture
11:00 ideation & "pitches" / challenge discussion
11:30 teaming up
~ 12:00 the hack is on!
13:30 healthy lunch time
14:00 (optional) Stefan - a deep workshop on dockerized local setups, microservice patterns and asynchronous issues
19:00 bbq (thank you Jambit!)
22:00 enjoy the silence (you can camp in basislager's backyard & we're keeping a room free for everyone who wants to nap)
Sunday Aug 4th
24:00 midnight surprise
12:00 commit push && rm -rf /
12:15 presentations (there won't be "judges" or a "jury", just show us what you've achieved)
13:00 platform merge && live deploy
13:15 snacks, hi5s and backslapping
14:00 get back to your real life!
We'd like to leave the headline open for any hack ideas but we've setup challenges along the "coding.earth" website. It's supposed to aggregate developer relevant content: conference or meetup dates, platform news, framework release announcements, tutorial video rolls, talk slidedecks - whatever you think could drive the idea further and make a coder's life easier.
Add authentication, redesign the service architecture, hack on the frontend or build a commonly usable text indexer - choice of stack, tools, language and codestyle is up to you. The website will be publicly available, always stays non profit, its source will be open (MIT) and of course all your code contributions will belong to you.
All contributions follow our golden "*1 line of code*" rule, so demos and live code will be abound. You don't have to register to get into our stream but if you do, we send you updates (and nothing else) like the final YouTube URL of the stream before the event.
