How it works

Everyone has the opportunity to learn by doing at our events.

Whether you come with an idea, project, or team – doesn’t matter.

The event will be coordinated in semi-open-space will happen during scheduled as well as emergent sessions, (self)organized in accord with Agile principles.

Experience

The typical Hackathon culture has participants staying up all night, drinking energy drinks and eating junk food in a competitive community driven by prizes as motivators. A couple people leave as winners, most people leave as losers, and everyone leaves exhausted. That’s not our style.

We want to build a more humane internet with greater individual sovereignty and collective intelligence, and we want to reflect that intention through our events. Holochain Hackathons are focused on building community through the sharing of information and skills in a cooperative context. We want the process to be centered in building relationships and learning together to create a rich experience for all. We’ll organize and schedule sessions as and when needed so that we spend more time learning by doing and less time in back to back classes. We feed include healthy food options and have reasonable start and end times so that participants leave the event feeling good.

Cost

Registration fees go towards covering the cost of the venue, food, and materials. We want the event to be accessible to everyone, if finances are a barrier for you, please reach out to us at organizers@holochain-nyc.org for support.

Inclusion and Diversity
