This weekend (February 18-20) the 48 h D.I.Y event Hackathon took place in a chilly industrial building, next to what is to become Fabriken at STPLN in Västra Hamnen. If the working space was rather cold the atmosphere among the participants was the total opposite to that. Some fifty-sixty people contributed to the success of the event by the sharing their ideas, knowledge, material, and good spirit. Herrgårds Kvinnoförening was running the catering service serving delicious lunches and dinners.
The event ended on Sunday afternoon with demo-sessions of some of the projects that were produced during the weekend. More documentation and information about project can be found at stpln.com.
Hackathon was a pre-event to the grand opening of Fabriken at STPLN in the end of March. See STPLN for more information about the opening, about Fabriken and up-coming events.
