What do I need to participate?
You only need a laptop and even then, you may be able to smooth talk someone else at the event to work with you. Throughout September and October we’ll be sharing tips about tools, robot ideas, and neat techniques. Register for the event or register for our mailing list to get the latest.
What skill levels are required?
You should be comfortable in at least one of electronics, microcontrollers, mechanics or software. By comfortable we mean you have tried it before and won’t panic come Saturday morning when you get your kit. It will be up to you to check out your fellow hackers and find someone who complements your skills. Once again, throughout September and October we’ll be sharing tips about tools, robot ideas, and neat techniques. Register for the event or register for our mailing list to get the latest.
Can I work by myself?
You can, but…we would prefer if you work with at least one other person. Our kits are for teams of two registered participants, so you’ll have to provide your gear if you work on your own. We also think you will get more out of it if you work with someone else.
What if I have an idea for a robot to build but no one to build it with?
Don’t worry! Friday night is designed for you to meet other hackers and find someone to work with. We will help with introductions and we’ll set up a networking event for everyone to meet everyone else.
How large can my team be?
We suggest maximum 3 or 4 people but if you find a whole posse you can’t work without then by all means, Get Your Bot On!
If I have questions whom do I get in touch with?
Contact our team at email@example.com and we’ll get back to you right away!.
Who is organizing this hackathon?
We are a group of volunteers who love Hackathons and love robotics and hardware . We are entrepreneurs, hackers, artists, and tinkerers who want to meet other robotics hackers in the area. Of course having something cool to do on a Saturday night sounded awesome too!
