If you’re anywhere remotely near Munich in November you’re not going to want to miss this. Hackaday is throwing our first European event! The fun runs from 12:30-23:30 on Thursday, November 13th, 2014.
Take the afternoon off of work
Tell your boss this is professional development, then grab all your hacking gear and head on down to Technikum at the Munich Kultfabrik.
Our set of workshops will test your embedded skills whether you’re a beginner or seasoned veteran. These include controlling small robots, working with audio processing from a Moog synth, reverse engineering some mystery hardware, and trying your hand at machine vision.
Try win the afternoon’s challenges. Implement the fastest and most reliable robot brain, design the best Moog synth add-on circuit. Or prove your logic skills by coding a perfect Computer Vision game solver. We’ll bring some prizes for those that show the most clever and impressive skill.
Take in the talks and learn the winner of The Hackaday Prize
Beginning at 19:00 we present a couple of talks about embedded hardware sure to impress the most discerning of hackers. Immediately following we will announce the Grand Prize winner of the 2014 Hackaday Prize. This Open Hardware build is the project that made it through more than 800 entries to secure a trip into space and eternal recognition from the Hackaday community.
Finish the day with a party
Finally, we’ll dim the lights and turn up the music for The Hackaday Prize Party. Enjoy some food and beverages, get yourself 3D scanned, try your hand at some vintage video games, and enjoy the company of the Hackaday Community. In attendance will be [Mike Szczys], [Brian Benchoff], [Aleksandar Bradic], [Jasmine Brackett], and [Ben Delarre].
We’ll see you there!

Nice to see Europe being treated as a first class citizen! Good luck with the event.
Nice finally in europe but it’s still an 8 hour drive for me.
Wil there be one in the future in the netherlands?
Hack-a-day *really* should consider hosting one of these events during Dutch Design Week. James Hobson was here last year, and really enjoyed it. ;)
I would love to get there as i live in Germany.
But it is still not cheap and would take almost one day with the train.
Try Mitfahrgelegenheit or Fernbus
hmm. Fernbus: 10h.
Anyone from Hannover?
Well, if you need to convince your boss, there is also another good reason to be in Munich at that time. Electronica 2014 will be happening 11-14. November too.
For certain. Is anyone attending Electronic who wants to sneak out and hack with us for an afternoon?
hey cool if anybody needs a ride from the Stuttgart/ Esslingen area then please leave a comment here or contact me by email drhwakeyeXXXX@gmail.com (spam prevention to send an email to me replace XXXX with1978 in the above email address)
hätte Interesse aber die Email gibs nicht (ja hab die XXXX ersetzt).
ups sollte email@example.com sein
Is someone from Düsseldorf driving down to Munich?
Or from Braunschweig? ;)
Indeed I am. But i’ll take the train. Ticket is booked :)
Hannover. pretty close :)
The drive wouldn’t be that bad, but the during the week is not really an option…
Sweet! I’ll do my best to bring a bit of Italy in the event, though I first have to deal with my bosses to get the leave, then I have to deal with home moving (lots of money getting out of my pockets), so I may be short on money to get plane tickets and book an hostel for a few days. Though again, I’ve never been in Munich and this sounds like the best reason to do so!
Nice one, am in Munich for work. Originally from Asia, so this is a golden opportunity. Hope I can make it!
Yay – will introduce you to the Munich Maker Scene at the Event :) Btw 1/2 November http://make-munich.de DIY Maker Fair
Will it be in English or german ?
A question regarding the tickets: Do I have to book tickets for a workshop in addition to the general admission or are they included?
Afaik i understood Mike if you are interested in a Workshop you need to book that ticket instead of the generic one. But! The Technikum is quite big :)
So that went quick, workshops already all gone after less than 4 days…
