It's number 100. Yes, 100 HackWimbledons and no one has been attacked by a robot. Yet. For this, and many other reasons, we're going to party, and by party we mean make things. And there may well be some catering, prizes to be won and other nonsense befitting 100 sessions of making at our Wimbletech venue. What to make? We like our number challenges, so make something that does 100... displays, flashes, rotations, whatever as long as it's fun. Yes, fun because thats what HackWimbledon is for. Making things with electronics and motors and radio waves and light and whatever else we can harness.
Got a project your working on? Bring it along? Got an idea and looking for some hints or feedback? Come along. Work in the friendly informal environment, talk through plans, even come up with ideas for future HackWimbledon events. And if you are new to all this, come along and we've got all the bits you need to get your learning on. Simple things to remember; bring a laptop... we have WiFi and a laptop has a web browser, your key to finding things. There'll be lots to do, we have Circuit Playgrounds, Arduinos, Raspberry Pis and other gadgets to play with.
Don't forget we have a HackWimbledon web site - https://hackwimbledon.org - it's a HackWimbledon project too - and a Slack team for real-time chat - go to https://hackwimbledon.org/chat to get an invite...
Come along, bring snacks and healthy nibbles to share, but most of all, bring yourself!
As our regular reminder, this event is all about making and creating and sharing in a friendly environment and we're dedicated to making it work so people never feel uncomfortable, in whatever way, or unable to concentrate on their projects. We'll be making sure that this principle is maintained because it's what HackWimbledon is all about. If there's a problem, please talk with the organiser.
