Hack And Tell Berlin

Yesterday night I went to Hack And Tell in Berlin. This monthly MeetUp is organised here http://www.meetup.com/Berlin-Hack-and-Tell in the web. And on Twitter you find it here: https://twitter.com/BerlinHacknTell. The official HashTag is #bhnt. The event is every time at the C-Base Spaceship. It is a little bit similar to SFNewTech. Everybody can go on the stage and do a presentation. 5 min presentation and 5 min questions and answers. You presentation have to be tech. related. Business Questions are not allowed!

I saw a couple very good presentations. Really cool stuff. For example the Open Bank Project from Simon Redfern. The source code is open source and on GitHub: https://github.com/OpenBankProject


Another cool presentation was Thunkpedia. A new kind of interactive search. I like the idea of improving a search engine by human voting.


Konrad Reiche presented Security Cam: A Python and Android attachment for Motion to set up a security system.


I did a presentation by myself about VersionEye. Just showed the most important features and the API.


I got many questions and feedback. Somebody told me that I showed to less code during my presentation. I am sorry for that. This was my first Hack and Tell event. Next time will show the code for the JavaScript Dependency Wheel and how I solved the problem to pin a JavaScript Canvas on Pinterest.

And there have been much more cool presentations.

At the end of the event everybody can vote for a presenter. I voted for Thunkpedia because I like the idea and it is a non trivial problem. In the end the Thunkpedia Project and the Security Cam Project become the winners. They had the same amount of points.


Congratulations! 🙂

The Price is this awesome cup.


The winner can have it for 1 Month. And next month somebody else will get it 🙂
