2023 Hackaday Supercon Tickets On Sale Now!

The 2023 Hackaday Superconference isn’t taking place until November, but the time to get your tickets is right now.

Hackaday’s Supercon is far and away the coolest hardware-focused hacker con of the year, and if you’re Hackaday, you absolutely want to be there. Honestly, just the crowd that Supercon brings together is reason enough to attend, but then you throw in the talks, the badge-hacking, the food, and the miscellaneous shenanigans … it’s an event you really don’t want to miss.

We’ll be announcing the speaker and workshop lineups in the upcoming weeks, but as always, we’re opening up a number of True Believer tickets for those of you who know you’ll be coming no matter what. Head on over to Eventbrite now and secure yours before they’re all gone. These usually sell out within the first few hours of being announced, so if you’re reading this right now, don’t hesitate.

Supercon is a small and friendly event, and it will be a long weekend that you’ll be looking back on fondly for the rest of the year. Whether you’ve been every time or whether you have always wanted to see what the hype is about, we can’t wait to see you all there. Come join us!

Procrastinators Rejoice! 2023 Supercon Call For Participation Extended

When we closed the official Call for Participation for both workshops and talks last week, a good handful of folks wrote to us and asked if they could slip their presentation application in after the deadline. Who are we to say “no” to potential presenters? We want to see all the ideas!

We’re officially extending the Call for Speakers and the Call for Workshops for another week. Get your outline in before Aug. 1st at 9:00 AM PDT, and it’ll be in the selection for Supercon. (And no, we’re not going to extend it twice!)

The Hackaday Superconference is really and truly our favorite event of the year. It’s small, but not too small. The ideas everyone brings with them, however, are big. It’s like the absolute best of Hackaday live and in person. If you’re looking for a place to give a technical talk, or just to regale us all with the trials and triumphs of hacking, you won’t find a more receptive audience anywhere. Plus, presenters get in free.

Behind the scenes, we’re still working on the badge, but we’ve got many of the details fully hammered down. Expect tickets to go on sale in the second week of August – early bird tickets sell out fast. Keep your eyes on Hackaday for the announcement post when it goes live.

We know that November seems a long way out, but we’re looking forward to seeing you all already. Hooray for Supercon!

Hackaday Prize 2023: Meet The Ten Re-Engineering Education Finalists

They say time flies when you’re having fun, and doubly so when you’re hacking hardware. If you can believe it, we’ve already closed out the first challenge of the 2023 Hackaday Prize, and you know what that means — it’s time to announce the 10 finalists.

As a reminder, each of these projects not only takes home $500 USD, but moves on to the next round of judging. During the recently announced 2023 Supercon, we’ll announce the six projects that were selected by our panel of judges to collect their share of $100,000 in prize money– plus a residency at Supplyframe’s DesignLab and eternal hacker glory for the Grand Prize winner.
