Hack4Glarus is the biannual hackathon organised by ungleich. It welcomes hackers from all over the world to hack together on projects in the pretty mountains of Glarus. It is all about technology and fun.
Due to the Coronavirus situation, we decided to have the Hack4Glarus 2020 Winter as fully virtual hackathon.
The topics and dates for the editions are:
You can pre-register and let us know which dates work for you on https://doodle.com/poll/wddfqikfh32p8ksi.
Mentors: Dominique Schuwey, Samuel Hailu
Mentors: Reyk Flöter
In normal times, we hosted hackers from all over the world from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon for one weekend in June and December to our data center in the mountains of Switzerland. This year, the world is going through an extraordinary time, and we are adapting ourselves to the situation. We are not meeting in person this year, but we will meet in the best way we do: in virtual space.
So how does it work? Hack4Glarus is a hackathon that starts on Friday afternoon. You will be presented with details to the challenges and given hardware (where necessary). The objective is to solve your challenge within 42 hours.
In normal times:
We provide you the space, Internet, food and drinks. And mountains. A lot of them. Also, a brand-new Hack4Glarus shirt. And you will meet a lot of cool people. At Hack4Glarus you can hack, learn, meet, talk and discuss. Optionally also sleep (mattresses are provided).
In virtual edition:
Hack4Glarus has been inviting the firendliest hackers you could imagine, the community behind it is open and welcoming. You can join our open chat and meet the community before, during, and after the hackathon.
When you register for Hack4Glarus, you need to choose one of the two tracks: the non-tech or tech track.
In this track you are challenged to solve business development, marketing or other entrepreneur tasks. It can also be challenges that involve technology, but you don't need to use technology. You will face real-world questions and get consulting from the ungleich team for solving your challenges.
The tech track is where your tech hands can get dirty. Setting up virtual infrastructures, hacking on operating systems, using/configuring routers/switches, experiencing the IPv6-only world are some examples of the challenges that wait for you in this track. It is highly recommended to bring a laptop with a unix-alike operating system if you join the tech track (anything from *BSD to Linux to MacOS will do).
