Garage48 Hardware & Arts Riga 2018

Brace yourself: Garage48 Hardware & Arts hackathon is coming! 🛠

You are invited to participate at the design-technology hackathon Garage48 Hardware & Arts 2018, happening on October 12-14 at the Riga Technical University Design Factory.

Garage48 Hardware and Arts brings together makers and creators from all over the world (mostly Baltics) to create hardware solutions that have never existed before.

It’s where the hardware, software and design communities work together tightly in joint teams to deliver working physical prototypes in just 48 hours. And once again, it all takes place in Riga!

All product designers, UI/UX designers, electronics and mechanics engineers, programmers, mobile and web apps developers, marketers, business developers, students and art lovers are welcome – you can come with or without an idea!

We’ll help you to form a team and give you tools, equipment and other fancy stuff to make your wildest hardware and arts related ideas happen. During the hackathon we will take good care of you – you will be mentored by the best, fed the yummiest and introduced to cool new people in our really cool venue of RTU Design Factory!

To make the event a success for you, we’re also going to hold pre-events that help you to prepare yourself and your idea for the hackathon. Stay tuned for more info!

And if you’re coming from Estonia, you can hop on a FREE participant bus from Tartu or Tallinn and back. 🚌
