Pre-HackDay Checklist


Things to Bring: 

  • A wifi enabled laptop (international visitors; remember your power adapter)
  • For overnight hacking bring a pullover or sweatshirt in case you feel cold at night
  • If you are staying overnight, we will provide sleeping areas & bean bags. Not required but you may want to bring a sleeping bag if you need one to catch a nap on the Saturday night.
  • We will provide you with food throughout the event, so there will be no need to bring your own.


Appserver hosted on a domain

You will need access to an internet server where you can host and demo your hack from if needed. If you don't have one already look around there are many cheap providers who can get you a temporary one for a month or so. If I find some with good deals I'll list them here.

Its just for the demo, right? Why not to use our own machines as servers?

Judges will be checking your app only after presentation ends. Presentation will just be an 3min intro. So if you want to use your own machine then you have to gift it to the judges :)

Hello. This is not correct. You can host from your own machine. You only have 90 seconds to present your hacks to the judges. They will not look at them afterwards. It is however always better to host your hacks elsewhere so people can access them after the event.

1) Murphy's law
2) people will want to try and use the app you have created. I think a laptop will not be enough for this.

I didnt mean to go to each of the judges and demonstrating. I said using my laptop as a server. Each and every machine ll be connected to the internet provided at the facility, which means that we all ll have our own IPs. For example, I can share my app like this, so that everybody in the hall will be able to use it.

But last time we faced problems in finding power outlets... That would make me think about looking for a cheap server ;)
