#HackSTB Alpha1

The first meeting of the #HackSTB group will be held on Wednesday 11 April at 17:30.

#HackSTB aims to showcase tech projects designed and built in Stellenbosch. At this point the plan is simply to meet for a monthly social event in the form of a Demo Day.

The first event will involve some planning, a demo or three, a video or two, snacks and drinks.

The plan is to create something in the spirit of the Homebrew Computer Club. Less talking about doing something, more doing, demos and hacking.

Hack Stellenbosch to be more like you want it to be. Get lab projects into the real world – test them in and around Stellenbosch.

I’m going to be showing you Gust (something we hacked together in 6 weeks) it’s a geo-fenced mobile payment experience. With a bit of luck we’ll also be showing you an Augmented Reality app for AfrikaBurn. There will probably be a third demo.

See you on Wednesday.
