There is a new opportunity for hacking!

Popathon! – A one day hack jam presented by Mozilla & i-Docs/DCRC – PM Studio 22.3

Calling all JavaScript coders/hackers & Graphic/UI designers!
Popathon – Saturday, March 22
PM Studio 
10:00 – 17:00
£5 (to cover all day refreshments)
On Saturday, March 22nd Bristol’s first Popathon will take place at the PM Studio. A day-long creative hack-jam giving participants hands-on experience creating interactive stories on the web. Visual storytellers, JavaScript coders and Graphic & UI Designers get together to exchange skills and collaborate on real-world projects.
We’ll introduce open source tools like Popcorn.js, a JavaScript library that integrates the web into media production. You team up to design interfaces, create new open-source code and demo prototypes of your own interactive web-native stories.
Teams compete against the clock, not against each other. The hack jam is a great opportunity to learn about new tools and tricks by creative collaboration.
The event will be run by Philo Van Kemenade and Gilles Pradeau – who present the FridayLunchtime talk at PM Studio on March 21st.

Please feel free to circulate at will – this is an open call to participation.

We’ve organised for an interesting speaker to come to the hub next Thursday (24th) at 1pm, Hanna Wirman.
She’s got all sorts of stories from her recent work in Hong Kong, running Games Jams with Orangutangs, and other crazy stuff.
You can of course just come along, we’ll also have people from downstairs and the Pervasive Media Studio but it’s open to all so if interested you might want to book a seat at
http://hannabristolgameshub.eventbrite.co.uk/ – Tickets are free but places are limited!
There may be tea and cakes provided by the downstairs lot as well, in case you need another reason to come along.
See you there!
