Hacking topics

The topics of this edition of Hack4Glarus are:

Devuan & BSD
Digital Glarus


Some claim it is dead, some embrace it like their family. We say, there is no future of the Internet without IPv6. For this reason we have dedicated one track to hack on IPv6 topics. To develop the next IPv6 only killer app, to bridge the legacy IPv4 Internet into the shiny IPv6 world, to spread the word, to build a future that enables users.

Apply for this track, if you are interested in building the new world.

Devuan & BSD

What is open source? And how comes so many people started to develop stuff in their free time? We know one answer: Because freedom to choose is important. It is not acceptable for us to be forced to use a specific operating system. It is not acceptable to be forced to work with a flawed system. Or a specific init system that is clearly misdesigned. Many years ago the hackers of Linux and BSD exchanged their ideas and code to grow together. At Hack4Glarus we want to reinforce the open source community to hack.

Apply for this track, if you are interested in working on specific Devuan or BSD tasks.

Digital Glarus

The pretty mountains of Glarus have become our home for many years. With the fiber in the ground we have a great  basis for business development. The spacious old factory halls give us a great place for devloping new ideas. With this basis, only our imagination limits the possibilities in Digital Glarus. Join us to develop ideas for business and private people. To use technology for making things easier - or possible at all! If you need tech gadgets, tools, etc. for your project, let us know in your application!

Apply for this track, if you are interested in business development or creative use of technology.
