Shopify's Hackfest

Shopify accomplished some amazing things this year and we thought it would be fun to have a Hackfest to celebrate! Come check out our office and meet our team and hopefully walk away with some awesome prizes! 

Here’s how it works:

On Saturday, November 19th, you show up at our digs for 9:30am. We’ll give you a brief overview of how the day will run. Show you the ropes, if you will. From there, you will break into your teams and get working on an app. At 5pm, it’s time to Ship it! Then it’s time for show and tell, followed by our judges ranking the top three apps. The three winning teams will receive some big money!


If you have an idea for an app, or if you want to contribute to a project, or you simply want to meet some of the awesome Shopify staff and check out our digs, then you should definitely sign up for the Hackfest. No matter how junior or senior of a developer you are, this is a chance for everyone to learn from each other.

What Can I Win?

Glad you asked! We're giving out prizes for the top three apps at the end of the day. Here's the breakdown:
  1. MacBook Pro
  2. MacBook Air
  3. iPad 2

If you're working in a team and don't fancy chopping up your winnings, don't worry! We'll sort you out.

What to Expect:

-       To learn loads of cool new things.

-       Improve your technical Skills.

-       Meet and network with some awesome people!

-       Share your ideas and opinions with fellow developers.

-       Enjoy food, drinks and videogames.

What to Bring:

-       Your Laptops.

-       Mobile Phones.

-       Cables, chargers and connectors for any of the above.

-       Power Bars!!!!! You can never have enough power bars to go around. 

-       Data sticks, if you have one handy.

-       Coffee cup or water bottle, you need your fuel ;)

-       Anything geeky will be accepted.
