Secure Over-night Storage

Overnight Storage

If anyone would like to leave bags, laptops, etc overnight in the office rather than take them to MindTrek, please come and see John Goodland before 5:30pm - he has a key to lock them away in one of the office and you'll be able to get them again in the morning.

Beer O'Clock

Well done for all the hard work youu've done so far on your Hackathon projects - I hope you'll agree, there's been some great conversations, technical innovations and lots of fun so far.  It's been great seeing how engage everyone has been today, so thank you.

For those of you so inclined (please don't feel you have to) beer is now available in the fridge, wine and bourbon (aparently some sort of whisky!!!) are on the side, and soft drinks are available in the kitchen area.

Don't forget, the bus will be here around 5:30 (so in about an hour)…

Facebook Group - Hacking Success 2020

Facebook Group

A private Facebook group (Hacking Success 2020) has been created specifically for the Hackathon, it would be great if you could create posts, upload videos, etc of your experience during the Hackathon. You can request to join this private group here (or search Groups for Hacking Success 2020) – participation of course is not mandatory, but it would be great to create a good buzz around the Hackathon if possible.
