What is Hack-Attack?
Hack-Attack is West Plains’ first Hackathon, where you’ll hack together a solution to a problem you attack. Ok, bad jokes aside from one of the Organizers, Hack-Attack is geared to anyone and everyone in the community. Many Hackathons set a theme as a way of defining some parameters, like developing an app for one of the local non-profits. However, us here on the OzTech team, thought that for our first of many Hackathons, we should be as inclusive as possible. Thus, what project or problem do you have or see that just needs some focused time to attack it? Would having other people around who are just as dedicated to talking, collaborating, networking, coding, solving, and developing among many other skills help get some progress on the project? Or what about the services of a dedicated work space to just come and work, would that aid in getting the project off the back burner? If the answer(s) to those questions is/are “Yes!” then this event is for you.
Who is this event for? Anyone, but we believe you should have:
-A knowledge of coding, as we’re not teaching workshops at this event
-A problem that you want to attack and solve and/or
-A willingness to jump onto teams and help others out with your skillset, along with
-An attitude for collaboration on making the best solutions possible in 24 hrs
-(or in the case of failures -as “Failure is always an option” Adam Savage quote- learning from those failures and discovering a new starting point for the next time)
What will you do?
You have 24 hrs(-ish) to do a thing in coding, web development, or another technical project. Bring your own project to work on for the 24 hour window, select from a curated list from your organizers, or just come to help others develop their ideas.
What will you get?
A sense of accomplishment of tackling a problem in 24 hours. (and there is a commemorative item for being at the first Hack-A-Event in West Plains)
