Thanks to Simon for the icons

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Thanks to Simon Bloom of Bloomindesign for creating the icons and logo for Hack Day. You’ll be seeing his work on everyone’s chests on the day as they’ll be stickers to help us organise ourselves.

Simon’s a long time member of the Farm and designed the current version of our site back in 2004. We’ve all come along way since then.

Coding Dojo coming to Hack Day

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Joh Hunt is bringing the Brighton Coding Dojo to Hack Day. The Dojo lets people experiment with coding in a friendly, non-competitive environment and has some cracking programmers take part, so we’re very interested to see what they come up with after a day’s hacking.

What is the Farm Hack Day?

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

A ‘Hack Day’ is a gathering of developers, designers and general techie-types where people make new things, for instance new websites, apps, widgets or thingumees (OK, I made up that last one.) It’s basically a chance to get together, make something cool, show off techniques, and have some fun.

The Brighton Hack Day is being organised by Paul Silver and other members of Brighton Farm, a freelancers networking group. It’s part of the Digital Festival happening in Brighton across November.

It’s a free event, supported by sponsors. It’s happening at the Brighthelm Centre on Saturday 17th November. There are limited spaces (80) and we’ll be opening ticketing in a week or two, keep watching this blog for an announcement on that, or mail and I’ll make sure you’re given a heads up.
