Event Details

As you may know, Joshfire has a strong hacker culture ;-) We regularly hold company-wide hack days where everybody is free to work on a small project of his choice to be demoed at the end of the day. It is a fantastic way to foster innovation and creativity.

The Joshfire Factory is an open ecosystem. We have already fully documented the development process of templates and everybody can freely import custom templates into the Factory. This is not true for Data Sources yet but we are working on making it possible soon.

How soon? Well, our next hack day is March 27th and it will be about creating new Data Sources for the Factory. And because Data wants to be Open, we're actually opening this hack day to everyone!

So if you are a content provider, have a startup with an API, or just want to hack, you can join us on March 27th and we guarantee that by the end of the day you'll be able to build cross-devices apps based on your data!

We'll start the day with a short technical overview of our Data platform and then you'll be able to hack on your own Data Source, with the help of Joshfire developers. As you can see in the template API, the Data Sources are fully written in JavaScript and normalize their data around schema.org, which makes them compatible with all the templates. So if you can write JavaScript, you'll be able to bind your data to the Factory!

Register ASAP and contact us if you have any questions!
