Inaugural Brock Library HackFest set for July 25


The inaugural Brock Library HackFest is set for July 25.

Join a group of interested technology enthusiasts as they build, deconstruct, mash up, and re-envision information from the Internet.

Set in an informal environment, attendees will be free to mix, mingle, discuss ideas, and to begin working on prototypes or code.

The theme for the event will be ‘Hack Niagara’. Registered attendees will be provided with a list of topics about a week before the event to help get the ideas going.

The only requirement is your curiosity and a laptop. The Brock Library will provide coffee, breakfast, Wi-Fi and whiteboard space. There will also be a collection of electronics to use in your collaborations (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc.)

The event will be open to the public.

At the end of the day there will be an opportunity to briefly present what you’ve hacked. The most interesting presentation wins a prize and trophy.

Tickets are free. Please RSVP if interested. If you have any questions please email Tim Ribaric.
