It is time! The uber-popular Garage48 Hardware & Arts hackathon is coming to Latvia! On the 29th of September - 1st of October, the hands-on hackathon for makers and creators is happening for the first time ever in Riga, Latvia at the RTU Design Factory. Since the first hackathon was held in Tartu, Estonia in 2014, the Garage48 Hardware & Arts hackathons have positioned itself among creative doers from all over the world.
Whether you’re a product designer, UI / UX designer, electronics engineer, mechanics engineer, server programmer, mobile or web apps developer, marketer or a researcher; we welcome participants that can deliver working physical prototypes in just 48 hours! The goal for the weekend's boot-camp is to bring new concepts of physical innovations to life, so it's all about challenging yourself and thinking outside-of-the-box!
Garage48 Hardware & Arts Riga is organised in co-operation with EstLat Accelerate project and hosted by RTU Design Factory. You can join the event with an idea or by having amazing skill-sets! You do not need to have previous hackathon experience, but we expect a willingness to learn and positive attitude! During the hackathon we will take good care of you - you will be mentored by the best, fed the yummiest and introduced to cool new people!
To make the prototyping hackathon a success for you, we’re also going to organise 2 pre-events that will help you to prepare for the prototyping hackathon. You can join the pre-event in Estonia or Latvia, where you will be able to test your idea for the hackathon and ask questions regarding the event.
