A Hack the Dot is a two-hour hackathon where coding school students, junior developers, experienced developers, marketers, designers and curious web people come together to build ideas around a domain name. Our events are meant to be a quick and fun way to build a humorous (and functional) product quickly, while meeting people in your tech/startup community.
There will be pizza.
What to Bring / How to Prepare:
• Bring your laptop (fully charged). Bring your charger just in case.
• Install the Atom text editor. Go here: https://atom.io/
• Setup a github.com account
WHEN: THURSDAY, November 17th, 2016 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
WHERE: Galvanize Seattle (111 South Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98144)
The absurdly awesome domain-driven hackathon is back @ Galvanize Seattle to keep the summer party going!
How does it work?
Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams and assigned spirit animals to guide their efforts.
Step 2: All teams are provided with an undisclosed single premium domain name by name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious.
The only hint: Make Email Servers Great Again!
Step 3: Team have just two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. The team builds the most creative and fun idea for the domain wins.
Participants will be judged on four criteria: (1) functionality, (2) design, (3) humor, and (4) creative domain name interpretation.
