I’ve been to ProtoHack events in the past and they’re brilliant: there’s great speakers, it’s a friendly and collaborative community, and they’re very well run. It’s particularly useful for engineers that want to enhance their prototyping skills. There’s a new ProtoHack event coming up, here are the details:
ProtoHack is the code-free hackathon for aspiring entrepreneurs, business people, and designers. Either flying solo or in a team (up to 4), you’ll go from an idea to an interactive prototype in one day.
ProtoHack exists to show non-coders that they can create something amazing from nothing. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge and connections that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping. You have 9 hours to prototype your idea and then present it on stage to a panel of expert judges.
