XinCheJian will host a Crossover Hackathon!
Thanks to a proliferation of inexpensive SBCs (Single Board Computers), such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi, and an amazing array of easy-to-use sensors and actuators, the lines between programming and hardware are blurring fast. Even if you know nothing at all about hardware, you can get started in minutes and make a leap from the virtual to the physical. Along the way, you can help demonstrate why XinCheJian persists today: the vision that things can work together with open source and skills sharing. Join us to make simple hardware easy and complicated hardware possible, even if you are not an engineer.
The hack-a-thon will kick off on September 19th from 18:30 – 21:00pm at XinCheJian and run from 9am on September 20th – 17:00pm on September 21st. The finalists in each theme will pitch their concept at kickoff. The winners are eligible to receive valuable prizes.
