WhoHack #4

2014-07-20 (Sunday) @ Startup Incubator, Rijeka, Croatia

We've done it again! Surprised everybody with something crazy and new which kinda feels it could be our tagline for future events. :)

So what was the big surprise? The picture below could speak for itself. With the help of awesome team and great sponsors we managed to award everybody, and not just the applied participants (read: hackers) but the team too. Everybody got a gadget of some sort. We had 18 valuable tablets, 6 WiFi printers, 3 big speaker sets, 5 travel irons (yes, the appliance that irons your clothes) and a Power Ranger action figure :)

Short promo made by Robert Lesac shows just a tiny part of the atmosphere:

WhoHack Clock Hacking started early at 9am with a deadline set to 7pm but prolonged to 7:30pm to give that missing 30 minutes some teams really needed. :) All rooms were equipped with a special clock made by Izvorka Jurić just for this hackathon. With a total of 24 hackers, we concluded the hackathon with 8 games.

Since everybody is a winner, here are the selected top few:

#1 Mega Jump Arena

Original announcement

Let's do and learn something new, cool & fun this time!

The theme of the WhoHack #4 mini-hackathon is "game development", happening on Sunday, 20th of July. Come up with an idea that you can accomplish in 10 hours using your programming and design skills. It can be anything that runs on any plaftorm like a smartphone, desktop computer, game console or even the smartwatch for what we care (that would be cool though).

We urge you to make a simple game. Please keep your ideas simple and doable in 10 hours. We suggest you do something like a Flappy Bird, Doodle Jump, Pong, TicTacToe or whatever as long as it's super-simple, interesting (don't just copy what already exists, make it fun or just 'funny') and new in any way :)

Best teams will be awarded with Android tablets as a great motivation to keep making games. Android is the perfect platform to start quick so we hope you put it to good use, or just give it to your mom :) Food, drinks and snacks will be provided in unlimited quantities, just make sure to create the winning idea!

  • The project must be a game
