Hack the Dot Denver: Turing School of Software & Design 12/8
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
How does it work?
Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams and assigned spirit animals to guide their efforts.
Step 2: The teams are provided with the same undisclosed domain name by Name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious.
Step 3: Teams 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.
