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.
Hack, Hack, Hack!
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.
We provide you the space, Internet, food and drinks. And mountains. A lot of them. 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).
This summer, Hacking Villa Diesbach will open its beautiful door to the hackers, giving you the special experience: hacking in the 19th century hotel, anyone?
Meet us online:
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 following tracks are open for 2023 Summer Edition.
* Post Corona community building - do's and don'ts
* Digital Glarus for outsiders - how to market
* Sustaintable community building in the country side
* Post central communication - what to leave behind after Twitter, Facebook...?
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). The following tracks are open for 2023 Summer Edition.
* All about Kubernetes
* IPv6 (only) networking
* The WiFi challenge - building the longest connection
* Building on top of and enhancing the fediverse
