The only requirement is that these are primarily coding based projects. Anyone can sign up for a slot on the day. Audience will vote for the projects they are interested in and groups of 4-5 formed to work on projects. The day will conclude with 5 minute presentations of achievements. We will make sure there is a variety of projects to cater to people of different abilities so even if you only have a basic grasp of programming then don’t be afraid to come.
  • Pitching a project : Pitchers should come prepared to describe the aims of their project, why it is interesting / benefits the community and technical pre-requisites (e.g. experience with AWS, web scraping, basic Python, advanced R etc). Smaller projects that can be completed in a day preferred. Larger projects should have milestones that can be completed in a day. Pitches and final presentations will be made available following the event so only present what you are happy to be made public.

  • Food / drink : Only water, coffee and snacks are provided. Attendees can order their own food to the venue, take a break to find a restaurant in Kennedy Town or bring their own lunch.

Price : 50 HKD. We charge a fee to cover venue and food costs. We are not a for-profit organisation and will aim to keep the costs of our events as low as possible to make it accessible to all.
