SpoCode is an organization and hackathon centered around the concepts of uniting Spokane's programming community and using our powers for good. Like superheros, but nerdier.

At this hackathon we'll be focusing on using micro-controllers like Arduinos and Raspberry PIs to automate all things. Don't be afraid to branch out and try something new; if you're not familiar with micro-controllers you should still come! We're going to spend 24 hours hacking for the greater good of everyone, forming teams, eating pizza, and having fun.

You will have the option of coming up with your own problem to solve. We'll have a list of pain points that people have brought up, like controlling lights, making a remote control car, or creating a sprinkler controller board. If it's something that you feel can help improve the lives of your family or neighborhood, protect the environment or just something that sounds fun, it's in.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a 24 hour event, and do I have to stay?
It's scheduled to go for 24 hours, but if you need to go home and nap or tuck in the kids, you're free to do whatever you need to do.
Do I need to be a programmer to attend?
No. If you're willing to work on something for the public good, show up. Anyone is welcome to participate and hopefully contribute.
Where does the entrance money go?
You'll be provided with 3 meals over the course of the event, plus enough Red Bull to make your eyes pop. We try to get sponsors to cover as much of the expense as we can, but that's not always possible for everything.
What platforms do you build on?
We encourage participants to take advantage of the services offered by our sponsors, but we're cool with whatever works for you.
