Hello Computer Hackathon

Hellocomputer http://www.hellocomputer.com/, a digital advertising agency, will be hosting a hackathon in conjunction with Wits Digital Arts and the JCSE on Saturday the 7th of December from 9am at 47 Juta Str, Braamfontein.

The goal is to combine advertising creatives with tech minds eg. web developers, programmers, makers, tinkerers, so that the product is a creative use of tech eg. a tweeting hamster; http://vimeo.com/62428175 (the result is both technically feasible, but also quite fun).

For this hackathon the theme is Hack for Holidays, which means you could hack anything from a Xmas tree to a bikini that comes loose with a clap of hands eg. http://vimeo.com/19777275#at=0.

We will be having an ideation session on Tuesday night at the agency in Sandton, 164 Katherine Street, Sandton (just off Grayston offramp), but this is optional.  The actual hackathon starts on Saturday at 9am.

 

Please contact Kerry Friend on 083 353 2625 or email kerry.friend@hellocomputer.com if there are any questions.

Or Nathan Gates on 072 782 7498.

 

And also some previous video reference.
