Jugaad Fest Hyderabad on 30th September 2018 – Hack, Fix, Trick It, or Simply Make Open Tech Work for You

Jugaadfest is a gathering of developers and FOSS contributors who get together to learn, share, and hack on Open Source projects for one day with the goal of making things work. 30+ mentors and successful FOSSASIA Google Summer of Code students from India and Europe will guide you during the day. At Jugaadfest you can:

  • join various hands-on activities, e.g. set up FOSSASIA apps, install conversational voice assistants, do experiments with PSLab
  • learn from developers how to find innovative fixes or simple work-arounds to get FOSSASIA prototypes working
  • learn how to build up an awesome developer profile that improves your job chances by collaborating in the FOSS community
  • improve your coding and tech skills while contributing to open source software and hardware projects
  • enjoy presentations conducted by veteran developers

Jugaadfest is a hands-on event. Please bring your laptop.

We kick-off in the morning with short introductions by developers of FOSS projects. After that participants have the chance to join teams at different tables and start learning and collaborating on Open Tech projects.

At the lunch break participants mingle and discuss what they have learned before they continue browsing  projects. At the end of the event day we ask developers to share their learnings in short lightning talks.

Certificates: Participants of Jugaadfest receive a certificate of participation. (Prerequisite: Full-day participation)

What is Science Hack Day?

Science Hack Day is a two-day event where anyone excited about making weird, silly or serious things with science comes together in the same physical space to see what they can prototype within 30 consecutive hours. Designers, developers, scientists and anyone who is excited about making things with science are welcome to attend – no experience in science or hacking is necessary, just an insatiable curiosity.

The mission of Science Hack Day is to get excited and make things with science! People organically form multidisciplinary teams over the course of a weekend: particle physicists team up with designers, marketers join forces with open source rocket scientists, writers collaborate with molecular biologists, and developers partner with school kids. By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of hackers are capable of producing remarkable results.

Venue

We have an amazing place called Sankalp Bhumi  Farm Resort for this event. It was once an abandoned quarry,  today natures glory restored. The resort resembles an enchanting oasis, with a thick set of trees, sprawling lawns, and a large lagoon surrounded by picturesque expansive rock walls as backdrop.
