A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects. – Wikipedia The True Growth 2.0 “Non-Profit” Hackathon is a 2 day event where creative and talented members of the ICT community will gather, collaborate and innovate – with a focus on the non-profit sector in Saint John and surrounding areas. Over the course of the weekend, individuals and teams will come together to brainstorm and then develop “prototypes” or “proof-of-concepts” of websites, applications, mobile apps - anything where technology can be used as an enabler – to solve a problem, to create an opportunity, or to just have some fun with. This event – something of a proof-of-concept in its own right - will be the first of what we hope will be many more events to come, where we will build on the interest we have seen to date for such an initiative and the momentum that we are sure will follow. Come out and show your support! Please check back often to keep up on the details as they continue to unfold. EVENT THEME: For this event we decided we’d focus on the non-profit sector in the Saint John and surrounding area. We’ll be reaching out to some of the local organizations for ideas, but feel free to do your own research as well. You can NEVER have too many ideas. Here’s a link to get you started: Note - If you have an idea that you would like to work on during this event that doesn’t happen to be related to the non-profit sector – that’s ok too! (We’ll still let you in!) TECHNICAL PLATFORM: No restrictions! Quite often, Hackathons will be organized around a technical platform such as HTML5, .Net or Java. For our first True Growth 2.0 Hackathon, we wanted to leave that up to the participants. So no matter what your platform, or what your interest, bring whatever it is that you do best (and/or what you may want to learn more about), and we’ll see what transpires. DATA SETS: Similar to how you’ll often see Hackathons organized around a technical platform, often they’ll be based on a dataset (i.e. open data from a particular city). Again, for this event, we wanted to leave this to the participants. A few ideas that you may want to consider for use on your project or idea might be: , , , , - but don’t let us limit your creativity! WHO WILL BE ATTENDING: Developers needed! Without developers, programmers, technical architects we won’t get past the idea phase, so if you write code, you should be here! We also need designers, user experience (UX) professionals, analysts and anyone who thinks they know a thing or two about building a great ‘app’. IDEAS: We’ll be reaching out to some of the local non-profit organizations to start to gather a few ideas that we’ll share with the registered participants leading up to the event. That said – we need your ideas too so bring them with you or submit them here. Important: No idea is too big or perhaps more importantly, no idea is too small. Recall that innovation is often defined as simply taking something that already exists and doing it in a different way. EVENT SCHEDULE AND FORMAT: As we touched on regarding the theme, platform and datasets, there are many ways to structure a Hackathon. The same holds true for the schedule and the format. Some are limited to an evening, while others are all weekend/all night adventures. Our first event will be somewhere in between. Saturday, November 30th 10 am - Noon: Ideas sharing and team formation Noon - 9pm: Development Sunday, December 1st 10 am - 3pm: Development 3 pm - 5 pm: Show & Tell PREPARATION AND GEAR: We will supply you with some work space, electricity and a Wi-Fi connection but we’ll depend on you to do the rest. Please bring your own laptop, and/or any devices you need for development and testing (i.e. tablets, smartphones). In the interest of maximizing your time during the event for actual coding, we’d strongly recommend doing as much ‘prep’ work as possible before you get here. This might include things like pre downloading of any data you may require, studying up on any APIs and libraries you may be using and getting set up for version control using a site like THE RULES: The first rule of this Hackathon is - there are no rules! For this event, we’re going with a ‘collaboration over competition’ approach. That said, in keeping with some overarching Hackathon principles, we’d encourage people to start envisioning their idea NOW but just hold off on writing the code until you’re at the event. JUDGING AND PRIZES: Over the course of the weekend, we’ll have representation from the ICT community to work with you and provide feedback on your ideas and prototypes. With help from Enterprise Saint John, we’ll be reaching out to some local restaurants, merchants and organizations to round up some swag to reward participants in a variety of categories that may include the likes of: most interesting idea most creative use of open data for your project best user interface best use of social media to promote the Hackathon (leading up to and during) most coffee consumed in a weekend most fashionably coordinated team best use of interpretive dance to demonstrate your vision We’ll also crown one person or team as having the ‘best prototype’, but I think you get the idea. And remember - we’re all winners here! FOOD & DRINKS: Snacks, drinks (including coffee) and a light lunch will be served both days. Did I mention there would be coffee?! SPONSORS: True Growth 2.0 Sponsor – Enterprise Saint John Venue sponsor – T4G Other sponsors To be declared.

Cambridge Science Festival gives the public the opportunity to explore Cambridge Science. Thanks to the generosity of the University, our sponsors and partners, most of the events are free. The Science Festival aims to provide the public with opportunities to explore and discuss issues of scientific interest and concern and to raise aspirations by encouraging young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. Last year, the Festival welcomed over 30,000 visitors to over 200 events and received extensive national and local media coverage. Over 170 event coordinators organised talks, interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, film showings and debates with the assistance of around 1,000 staff and students from departments and organisations across the University and research institutions, charities and industry in the eastern region. In addition, over 140 people volunteered their time to act as stewards to ensure visitors had a safe and enjoyable Festival experience.
