LOVE meets Tech: The hackathon to help improve the lives of singles & couples! #wehacklove #iot #bots #physicalweb
Welcome to Munich: the capital of singles from Germany. Or was it Berlin or Hamburg?
#ForeverAlone – In Munich it seems particularly difficult to meet new people, not to mention a partner. This is not only sad, but can also be dangerous, as John Cacioppo describes in his TED Talk „The lethality of loneliness“.
Not only is this hackathon about dating, but also about couples. About 50% of marriage end up in a divorce. Non-monogamous relationships are on the rise, and couples explore their sexuality with more freedom than ever. Yet very little focus is given to relationships in the tech world.
We want to challenge the status quo! This is why Cook And Code and Stylight are partnering to organize Munich’s first LOVE HACKATHON.
Beginners are, of course, welcome! Cook and Code in association with Stylight will provide special workshops to teach the basics you need during the hackathon.
Stylight will provide a library of hardware devices: sensors, actuators, boards…
Therefore: All you need is love! (And … technology?)
- Two tracks: singles and couples
- No entrance fee
- Food and drinks included
- Strict Code Of Conduct
You can work with your favorite stack. However, we’d love to see projects related to:
- Web apps
- IoT (Google Physical Web, NodeMCU, wearable, etc…)
No matter if designer, nerd, or kindergarten-expert: everyone can participate in the Hackathon. We try to mix the teams with different skills and backgrounds so that each team can also implement a prototype. You can also join as a team.
2.12. From 7 pm Pre-Event: introduce your idea and find a team. Workshops and lectures on dating and technology round off the evening.
3.12. From 9am: Start building your prototypes. During the day you will find other exciting workshops, which you can visit. Your prototypes have to be finished by 6 pm – Codefreeze !!
3.12. 6:30 pm presentation ceremony
From 8 pm: Aftershowparty @ secret Location.
