What’s a Galileo?
Read more about the Galileo Here.
Friday 4th April 18:00 – Saturday 5th April 18:00
Farset Labs in our recently refurbished event space. To fuel the hacking we’ll be providing breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
Each team taking part in the Galileo section of the event is given a board to develop on (which each team can fight over to take home!). Then everyone gets access to the Lab’s toy box of peripherals, components, prototyping equipment and tools to build something inspiring / cool / insane / useful.
At the end of the event each team will be able to present the result of their hackery and our super savvy judging team will award a yet-to-be-decided prize to the best project.
If you don’t want to compete and just want to hack on other projects that’s cool too. The rest of Farset’s Facilities will be still open to experimentation and fiddling as usual.
As if anyone needs a reason to hack. Just in case –
- It’s our second birthday,
- Intel have come aboard as a corporate member
- If Galileo Galilei was still floating around he’d have been 450 in April.
There’s a limited number of spaces available so all attendees must preregister on Eventbrite, the sooner you register the sooner you can save a seat and start forming your A-Team.
Intel have launched an instance on their recently acquired hacker league platform for us, sign up here. In order to take part in the Galileo competition you must set up or join a project team on HackerLeague with “Galileo” in the name. Even if you have no idea what you’re going to do with it yet, we need to control the number of Galileo teams somehow and prizes may be awarded for the best name!
We’re particularly excited about this one, the space has been going through a lot of changes (ahem upgrades) and it’ll be great to get back to what we do best; hacking around with a bunch of great kit to play with.
- Everyone planning to attend must register on the Eventbrite
- Anyone attending can register on the Hacker League to join or set up teams or projects
- Everyone who wants to play with the Galileo and enter the competitions must register on the Hacker League and create or join a project with “Galileo” in the name
