Event Details

Have a great idea for innovating data center technologies or want to hack on hardware to seed your company?  Then join us for our third hardware hackathon at the upcoming Open Compute Summit, January 28 - 29, 2013 in San Jose, California. 

We will have cash prizes to help you seed your initial idea. In addition to the prize money, the Open Compute Foundation is partnering with a team of angel investors and venture capitalists who will work with you to formulate your initial idea into a business plan.

Winners will present their hacks and receive their prizes on stage during OCP Summit V.

Registering for the hack also registers you for the entire OCP Summit, so you can register for both events at once. Please see info on Summit V here:

Hackathon seating is limited to 200 people. Everyone who registers and participates in OCP Hackathon III will receive a special OCP Hackathon t-shirt. We ask that once you register for the hack, you participate in the entire hack, which will last 8-12 hours over the course of the two day summit.

OCP Hardware Hack III will consist of 2 tracks;the first track will encompass all active hardware projects under the Open Compute Project; the second track is allows you to hack on hardware that is outside of the existing active OCP projects.  As an example, at our last Hackathon in June we had a team who defined and built an automative hack.  For this hack we will have prizes for the different tracks. 

What we will provide:

As in previous hacks we will provide a set of components and tools at the hack.  We encourage you to bring with you any tools (software or hardware) or components that are necessary for your idea.

Things you and your organization will need to do prior to the Hackathon:

  • Determine what you want to accomplish during these 2 days.
  • Determine what additional tools and materials you will need to bring with you.
  • Work through the "ideation" (creative) process of your Hack.

More information on past hackathons can be found here

Keep Calm and Hack on!  See you in San Jose!
