Digital Sizzle 9 Art Hackathon

7/26/2013 6:00 PM - 7/28/2013 10:00 PM

FRIDAY 26TH JULY - SUNDAY 28TH JULY 2013

SOUTH PLACE HOTEL, 3 SOUTH PLACE, LONDON, EC2M 2AF

Remember last September's Digital Sizzle 6 - Art Hackathon?

“My best weekend ever... never had so much fun. The whole thing was very well organised, the food and the drinks available were awesome. This is the best hackathon I’ve been to. 3beards are pushing the boundaries in building a community of innovators for the future of technology."

- STEPHEN CHAN, SPECIAL MOVES (PARTICIPANT)

We loved it too Stephen, so we're doing another! But this time with utterly more style.

5 star South Place Hotel is the venue for the most deluxe hackathon ever to take place.

The brief is "take any data and turn it into something creative".

We're looking for a mixture of developers, programmers, artists, musicians, and polymaths (combinations of the 2!).

This will be the most luxurious time you will ever spend "working"...

FAQ

What if I don't want to stay overnight?

That's fine! Although we still need you to buy a ticket.

What's included?

Shared accomodation in the hotel rooms - please note that not everyone will get a bed though! So bring your sleeping bags :)

All your food and drink is included too!

Why are you charging?

We're a company that focuses on the community, but at the end of the day we're still a company! The ticket costs go towards the event running costs, and also help us continue to provide awesome events in future!

What happens at the weekend event?

On the Friday night, we'll facilitate ideation and team formation. If you have an idea, you can pitch it, and gather members for your project. If you don't have an idea, this is your chance to join a team!

You can begin working on your projects whenever you are ready - last year some teams started on Friday night, but the majoirty started hacking on Saturday morning.

Throughout the course of the weekend, we'll be monitoring progress, and providing mentors to help speed things along and help out.

Come Sunday, it's demo time! From around 4/5pm we'll begin the demo sessions, and then judgement shall commence!

What happens after the hackathon weekend?

Fantastic question. Last year, we chose the best projects and put them in Whitechapel Gallery for one night only.

This year, there will be a 2 day display at South Place Hotel, showcasing as many projects as possible.

PLUS, the best projects will be selected to be displayed at The Barbican for 2 weeks at the end of August!
