JELLYHACK : 36 hours global marathon of design & development to enhance coworking


You like coworking and something troubles you ? You want your workspace to be more fun, creative and crazy ? Submit your issues and ideas on Twitter, using #jellyissue.

You are creative ? You have talent (or not) ? Jellyhack is a 36 hours marathon during which hackers and designers will give birth to anything that comes to their minds to adress these problems.

Let’s create a huge win-win-project in between hackerspaces and coworking movement during the upcoming #JELLYWEEK.

1st Prize : A »jellycard« for the nomadic hacker

  • free access for the winning team to coworking spaces around the world, who are committed partners of the platin card
  • for max. 10 members of the team free use of the participating coworking spaces for 14 days per space, access expires within 2012, non-transferable

The list of supporters of the »jellycard« will be crowdsourced during the #JELLYWEEK with a short Questionnaire for coworker space operators. Why support the »jellycard« ? The hackers will create open source solutions for the coworking sphere. The coworking sphere will reward this valuable output vice versa for a better collaboration in the future with a crowdsourced gift.

When : January the 21st, starting at 12:00am GMT, end on January the 22nd at 23:59pm GMT

Where : At the nearest jelly location, or at your home.

Who : hackers, designers, musicians, cookers … anybody can participate, no specific skills are required. You can register here.

If you run a coworking space and would like to open your space to hackers, please announce your jelly on this google map and send us your jelly event questionnaire.
