Hey, I wanted to announce that this month's Synchronous Hackathon is
this coming weekend, February 19th-20th, going on at Kwartzlab. Every
month, various hackerspaces around the world schedule one full weekend
(including overnight) inviting people to come in and work on their
projects (or create new ones), which is streamed via webcam to other
This is our first public Synchronous Hackathon, where anyone in the area
can come in and work on projects. There will be snacks (we'll likely be
chipping in for pizza and what not as well) and of course our
fully-stocked drink fridge (with plenty of caffeinated options!). We'll
be open to the public from 12pm on Saturday straight through to 6pm on
There is also an optional monthly challenge, and for February it's the
555 Contest, where you can compete at building useful and cool
555-series timer projects for nifty prizes. Categories are Art,
Complex/Extreme, Minimalist, Utility and Best in Show.
Event information (including hackerspace participant list) can be found
More information (rules, categories, prizes) on the 555 Timer Challenge
Hope to see you out!
