STUPID SHIT NO ONE NEEDS & TERRIBLE IDEAS HACKATHON — LONDON

UPDATE @ 17:30 2016-07-23

🍕 will be here soon! Then we’ll start the presentations

UPDATE @ 11:15 2016-07-23

The doors are closed. If you’re late then:

  • Press the door buzzer for Potato
  • @ us in the chat

and someone will come and let you in.

UPDATE @ 11:00 2016-07-23

We have two groups of people attending: makers and spectators.

Makers will be admitted starting at 10AM. You’ll have plenty of time to finish up your project and make it presentable.

The rest (spectators) will come in at 4PM - snacks and drinks will be served and you’ll have some time to mingle if you’re done hacking.

We’ll start demos at 6PM - everyone will have at least 5 minutes to present their end result. We expect this to take around two hours.

Depending on what people will feel like, we’ll move to a nearby pub at around 8PM.

CHAT

We have a discord room if you want to chat to fellow hackers: https://discord.gg/RzwymGC

CONDUCT

The Quick Version

Our event is dedicated to providing a harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form.

Event participants violating these rules may be expelled from the event without at the discretion of the event organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organiser immediately.

Event staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.

HOW DO I RUN ONE?

Wanna run your own? We’re not a centralized organization, just a group of friends in London who were appalled it didn’t already have a Stupid Hackathon. You’re welcome to steal the idea for your city.
