Zürich (24-25.10.2015)

Incl. 19% Tax


The third Swiss Magento Hackathon is coming back and will be held on 24 & 25 october 2015 in Zurich, Switzerland, a multi-cultural country. It will be an event in the same spirit of those held in Münich, Berlin and Leizpig. So the event will be truly international. Magento developers from all over the world are welcome.

This Magento event is opened to everyone who enjoys coding, learning, sharing ideas and knowledge around the Magento eCommerce solution. A Hackathon will gather Magento developers with different skills level around common projects provided by themselves and which will be voted by the group.

The Pre-Party will held during the Meet Magento on friday evening in Glattfelden (http://www.meet-magento.ch). And the event will officially start on saturday morning at 9:00 until you can no more code. Traditionally, the group provides the project ideas, separate itself in different teams and organize by themself.

During the day, we will have some break to get the status of the projects and share eventually the problem you encountered and get help from other teams.
Presentations are also planned, let us know if you want to participate.

They speak about the event:

aHeadworks: "Magento Hackathon in Berlin was a success and we wish you were there. “What’s next?”, you may ask. Are there any places in the world where you can continue grasping Magento wisdom, hack all day long and enjoy the company of soul mates? Yes, and this time we are moving to Zurich!". Read more...


Magento: "Since the first-ever blog post welcoming you all to the wonderful world of Magento posted by Roy Rubin, one thing has been clear; the ever growing embodiment of the community’s strength. From revolution to innovation, the Magento community’s passion and desire to improve the Magento open source platform has been tremendous and uplifting. As the platform matured, so did the requests for new features, functions and removal of pesky bugs. " Read more...
