48hr Android Hackathon hits Berlin2012-02-06 1
Calling all Berlin Android developers! As part of Global Android Dev Camp, a massive 48hr Hackathon is coming to Berlin in February.
The Android in Berlin User Group and Berlin GTUG will be cooking up the mammoth event at c-base from 17-19 February. There’s room for around 60 hackers of varying levels at the venue, plus there will be live video hook-ups via Google+ Hangouts with other Android devs worldwide who will be participating in parallel events as part of Global Android Dev Camp.
The worldwide event will see devs from over 50 global locations hack for 48 hours nonstop. It’s expected that around 1,000 developers will take part – from Berlin, Munich and Dusseldorf in Germany, plus Warsaw, London, Kyoto and San Diego to name but a few more.
You can register your interest at the official Android in Berlin site – seats, W-LAN, food and drinks will be provided by the organisers – although we’d advise packing some extra Club Mate as well.
There are no restrictions, apart from the focus on Android. No matter whether the participants are working on individual projects or in a team; whether the project teams are collaborating at one location or are creating virtual project teams of various regions and nations. The participants share their intermediate results and experiences via G+ hangouts (video chats), conference calls, or shared documents to mark their progress, support each other and hopefully share the fun they’re having.
