The Second Annual Steacie Library Dungeon Hackfest

Feb 19, 2014 to Feb 20, 2014

Do you have a brilliant app idea but you are not sure how to code it? Or do you have a smartphone and you’re frustrated about finding York information? Are you the next Mark Zuckerburg?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we want you to join the Second Annual Steacie Library Dungeon Hackfest!

What is a Hackfest? If you haven’t been to one, it is about spending the day collaborating on a particular software project, and bringing the project to reality. Teams are usually comprised of people from different disciplines, such as computer science and engineering, fine arts, business, digital media, health, marketing and more.

This year’s theme is Culture and Technology in a Mobile World. The theme is about creating an app that can be about anything  health, accessibility, gaming, organizing or chatting  or creating an app for York. Alternatively, use the space to work on your own Hackfest idea.

If you have an idea, if you want to gain experience in app development or if you just want to participate in a fun collaborative environment, mark your calendar for the Second Annual Steacie Library Dungeon Hackfest on Feb. 19 to 20. Breakfast, lunch and caffeine will be provided.
