Hackathon

With all the great talent coming from all around the world, it would be a waste to have them only stay for 2 days and then leave. Therefore we are also organising a hackathon for people to come build, deploy and share creations during this week together.

For an idea of the content, see the video of the last hackathon I organised with jeremias (AcceptBit.com and localbitcoins.com).

London Hackspace is also available for night time hacking after LARC is closed. I recommend it as a place to visit anyway if you're in London.

Berlin Bitcoin Hackathon


Barbeque

There is a barbeque in Sheffield. See this thread for more details.

I recommend the bus instead of train for cheap prices:
