Hack Week, summer 2017


As much as we love decentralization, we do appreciate the need to sync up and spend some quality time together.

We're going to spend a week together hacking on projects, learning, creating interesting prototypes, demos, concepts, etc. Let's hang out, get inspired and share some knowledge :)




  • Check in: Sun 9/July/2017 (check-in late afternoon)
  • Check out: Sun 16/July/2017 (check-out in morning)


  • Confirmed: Viktor (+ Gerda), Peter, Petro, Tamas, Dani, Aniko, Sean, Greg
  • Interested, pending confirmation: Charlie

See here for short bios / introductions



Work on some ideas - to be proposed and selected by participants, see project ideas below. The scope should be small enough to make meaningful progress within a week (i.e. a prototype, demo, proof of concept, at least some slides). The objective is to present these results at the end of the Hack Week for each project.

Not only coding: Brainstorm, research, share, concepts etc.

Not only one idea: we can potentially discover and work on more ideas

Sessions, workshops

Share your knowledge! Propose topics you could talk about / teach / workshop / discuss in ~15-60 minutes. It could be about the philosophy of decentralization, a cool way of tying your shoelaces or the depths of cryptographic functions, etc. You don't even have to be an expert, just share something cool you've recently learned.

And have fun, peace&love&hapiness&sunshine


  • Accommodation: A total of 485000 HUF for the entire week (for up to 10 people)
  • Food/drinks: TBD, we'll put together some basic shared supplies
  • Travel: you cover this yourself

Default is to split shared costs evenly, but we're happy to consider sponsorship. Let us know!

Project proposals

Editable spreadsheet - please add your ideas below as one-liners, with your name.

We are going to schedule a couple of calls in advance where you can present the ideas briefly (one minute each), so you can inspire others to collaborate on them.
