Join Startup Edmonton for monthly Hack Days - time dedicated to building, learning and tinkering in a collaborative setting. Whether you are ready to build a new feature, want to improve your coding skills, or explore design thinking, Hack Days are a great way to get in the habit of building. Plus, it’s a chance to meet more members of the startup community, outside of head-down & focus work-time, and we provide loads of coffee & lunch.

Also, this month some community leaders are running a tech t-shirt and sticker exchange! Bring new or lightly worn t-shirts with tech logos to donate to other geeks, or come pick out some t-shirts and stickers from the stash. Any shirts remaining at the end-of-the-day will be donated. Drop by anytime and stay as long as you like!

Requirements: Idea or project to work on (even a class assignment), software or hardware focused, all skill levels welcome.

Equipment Available: littleBits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Bluetooth beacon, RFID kit, and Leap Motion. (Ask the Startup Edmonton Team if you would like to access any of these resources.)

  • 9:00am: Doors Open – grab a coffee and get settled in to work!
  • 9:00am: (Optional) Business Model 101 workshop - registration required
  • 12:00pm: Lunch Break
  • 1:00pm: Continue working on projects or attend a workshop
  • 1:00-4:00pm: (Optional) Join Free Code Camp in the kitchen – anyone interested in learning how to code is welcome, regardless of experience level!
  • 5:00pm: wrap up, high fives

Still wondering if Hack Day is for you? Our advice is to come down and give it a try! For expert and intermediate level participants, it’s an opportunity to get feedback on your work and spend time on passion products. For beginners, it’s a great way to dedicate time to learn a new skill.

Are minors welcome? Hack Day is suitable for high school & post-secondary students. Younger children & teens are encouraged to check out programming at the Edmonton Public Maker Spaces. Email hello@startupedmonton.com with any questions or requests.
