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.
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.
The Price is this awesome cup.
The winner can have it for 1 Month. And next month somebody else will get it 🙂
