Learning, making and sharing
Teams compete against the clock, not against each other. The hack jam is a great opportunity to learn about new tools and tricks by creative collaboration. Test early and often and be ready for the evening screening, where your web-native narrative may be selected for the Participants’ Choice Award.
Bring whatever you’ll need to hack with. Charged laptops with production software, external drives with footage or have everything online. Also bring headphones, as you’ll be working in a shared space. We encourage bringing ideas and content for your own projects!
What we aim for during the weekend is to create prototypes: projects that try out a focussed piece of functionality by using the capability of the web to create an interactive story experience. On the last evening, after presenting the work to the group, all prototypes will be also shared with the world as open-source repositories.
