December 14th we’ll be hosting a HACKmemphis HACKday at the space from 10am to 7pm. Vaco is going to be sponsoring lunch for the day and MidsouthMakers/HACKmemphis will make sure there are pleny of drinks & snacks throughout the day.
A HACKday sponsored by HACKmemphis. Bring your projects, form groups and make tech happen. Don’t have a project? No worries! Come join a project with other local developers. We will have plenty of tools on hand for nearly any kind of project (From small electronics to woodworking and crafts). We’re open to Software, Hardware, ANY kind of developer / maker / hacker.
As always, designers are encouraged to join this event. Help a team build an awesome UI or just come work on that project you never seem to have time to finish.
All the things you loved about HACKmemphis 2013, but in one day and with slightly fewer danishes.
Lunch will be provided (Sponsored by Vaco!) as well as snacks and drinks (Sponsored by MidsouthMakers) through the day.
Space is limited. Please do not register if you are not sure you will be able to make it. We anticipate selling out and having to use a waiting list. If you register a ticket and find out you will not be able to attend, please cancel your order or contact us so we can free up the ticket for someone else.
Note: Because MidsouthMakers‘ space is a place where tools and machinery are in use, their insurance requires all attendees fill out a waiver. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us prior to registering.
Thanks to Vaco for sponsoring lunch!

Other T-shirt sizes if desired. We only have a limited amount of L/XL shirts on hand.

Claudio will want to have the artwork (one or two pieces) the week before the class. Claudio will cut the artwork that Friday to have time to address any issues prior to the class on Sunday. On Sunday we’ll peel the stickers, place on the shirts and spray with a bleach solution. The shirt will then sit for 5-10 minutes depending on desired finish. We’ll then rinse the shirt in some water and finally in a vinegar solution to help neutralize the bleaching process. We’ll then hang the t-shirts to dry.
