Following a successful Hardware Hackathon last September, PCH and the Web Summit will be holding another event in advance of the giant tech conference this November. Design Partners will be sponsoring the Hackathon alongside Intel, Airbnb, Nordic Semiconductors and AIB. Taking place over three days from the 1st to the 3rd of November, the event will start with workshops and tutorials to prepare the participants in advance of pitching. The weekend will close with a panel discussion with speakers on design and innovation from Airbnb, Kano, Coca-Cola, and PCH moderated by Ann O’Dea of Silicon Republic.
Our CEO Brian Stephens will be mentoring teams over the weekend and Lukas Fuchs will be delivering a presentation on design for connected devices on Saturday from 3.45. The Hackathon is an intensive weekend where swift decisions need to be made so we will be available throughout Sunday to help teams find clarity in their proposition and prioritise prototype development.
