Coming Soon To The UK: Yahoo!’s Hack Day Europe on April 27-28
Hack days are one of the many ways we actively promote innovation through experimentation around Yahoo!. With that, Yahoo! Developer Network (YDN) is thrilled to announce the upcoming Yahoo! Hack Europe: London on April 27-28, 2013.
This two-day hackathon brings together a wide range of engineers to come together to build out ideas they are passionate about in an atmosphere that inspires collaboration, learning and innovation using the world’s top technologies from both YDN and tech partners. This will be YDN's third hack day in London. If you want to hack in an environment where you’ll be both challenged and inspired, this is the place to be.
What it will not be is an ordinary hackathon.
In addition to the staples of swift wifi, tempting treats and sharp troubleshooters, Yahoo! Hack Europe: London will stage panel debates on emerging technology trends, host skills workshops ranging from tricks of the trade to geeky crafts, offer a variety of fun and engaging puzzles to stimulate your mind, and fuel your creativity with large-scale interactive games. If you want to hack in an environment where you’ll be both challenged and inspired, this is the place to be.
What to expect:
- Two full days of hacking, with plenty of food, drinks, snacks and caffeine
- High-energy, informative speaking panels and live demos
- Workshops taught by top devs to level-up your skill sets
- Access to a buffet of technologies from around the web
- Hacking with world-class developers
- Experts from a variety of backgrounds who can help quickly quash bugs
- Top developer-lead workshops and assistance to quickly help quash bugs
- A playground of games and toys to interact, play and hack with
- Prizes and surprises
All of our previous hack days have filled to capacity, and since there are only a limited number of slots available, we'll ask you to tell us a bit about yourself including your technical background to ensure all participants have the technical ability to build a hack. This will also help you find the brightest teammates to work with. We look forward to seeing you there!
Saturday, April 27 - Sunday April 28, 2013.
