Garage48 Hardware & Arts 2017 is a one of a kind hackathon bringing together the creative communities of electronics, mechatronics and software engineers, UI/UX and product designers, marketers and other professionals. The event will be held at the University of Tartu, Institute of Physics on February 17-19, 2017, marking its fourth year in helping teams to innovate and change our lives.
This will be the hackathon of the year, where we expect people to work on crazy ideas with the aim to have fun while developing something cool and REAL - something you can hold in your hands. No matter what skills you possess - everybody who wants to build something is welcome! We want to engage people from different levels of experience: from students to experienced electronics engineers and start-up entrepreneurs.
Garage48 Hardware & Arts 2017 is organised in cooperation with the University of Tartu and the Estonian Academy of Arts.
