Date: Sunday 14th October 2012, 10:30am – 4:30pm
Location: 29th Southampton Scout Hut, Brickfield Road, Southampton
Entry: recommended donation £4 (GiftAid appreciated), lower is fine
This event is hosted by 29th Southampton Scout Group, all donations will be passed on to the Scout Group to cover hall hire fees.
There is no internet connection at the Scout Hut, but 3G internet is available. Soldering is allowed, but will be restricted to a couple of tables to prevent the spread of damage. Tables, chairs and electricity will be available, but you should bring anything else you’ll need (laptops, components, soldering irons). We encourage our members to share resources with other members, so if you don’t have something (e.g. a soldering iron) then don’t worry – I’m sure someone will let you use theirs.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available, but you’ll need to sort out your own lunch.
What is a Hack Day?
It’s a day where people can bring along their current projects (if any) and can work on them in the presence of other like-minded individuals. Others can have a look around, gain inspiration or offer a helping hand, or just have fun!
Are you just starting out with Arduino/Raspberry Pi? Putting the finishing touches on your latest life-size robot? Planning to build a water jet-pack? Hacking electronics into clothing? Hacking together the components necessary to make a new GNU/Linux distro or media centre software? Join us!
What if I don’t have a current project?
Come along anyway – help with someone else’s, or get ideas for what you could do! Skilled or unskilled, knowledgeable or not-so-knowledgeable, all are welcome!
Where do I sign up? What projects are going on there?
All you need to do is turn up, but the more people that come the merrier - so let people know you are coming on our mailing list, and if you’re planning on bringing a project with you then let us know what it is!
