Real Food Hack

McDonalds are holding a hackday, which seems so wrong it's ridiculous. If you fancy making a statement by hacking on stuff for REAL food, either making your own apps or helping existing startups, come to ours instead!

18 19 January 2014

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

On the 18th and 19th of January, McDonalds are holding their european hackathon. You get the chance to create apps that help McDonalds and their local communities! Isn't it great?

Well, we don't think so. We think it's the opposite of what hackdays are supposed to be. So, we're holding the Real Food Hack at the same time, just around the corner. If you'd like to lend your talents to making the world of food better, then this is the place for you.

This will be a very minimal hackday. There will be:

  • NO FANCY PRIZES!
  • NO FAMOUS JUDGES!
  • NO VCs LOOKING FOR NEW THINGS TO EXPLOIT^H^H^H^H^H^H^H INVEST IN!
  • NO INCREDIBLE FREEBIES!
  • NO UNLIMITED BEER AND PIZZA AND SWEETS AND ALL THAT CRAP!

Instead there will be:

  • TEA & COFFEE
  • A WARM OFFICE
  • A DECENT NETWORK
  • LOVELY PEOPLE
  • NEARBY FOOD BUSINESSES (that you go and buy from yourself when you want to eat)

If you want to come and build something new - fine. There will also be a bunch of startups there who are trying to make the food industry better, and would love your help. What you do is up to you. If you have ideas, please share them at https://github.com/realfoodhack/...

If you are a business and would like to provide a prize, or some food, or whatever, get in touch - maybe we can be slightly less minimal when the time comes ;)
