Hey Good Lookers!
I think a fair number of the people that hang out in the Open Source Projects category attended the JOIN Hackathon last year— If you didn’t, there’s a recap video here that highlights the winning projects!
This year, though we don’t get to be in a room together, we’re opening the same hackathon up to a global audience, over the course of 2 days— October 15 & 16, during the JOIN@Home virtual conference.
The event will be totally virtual, but we’ll still be facilitating project ideation, team building, and have some excellent learning resources for you— As well as brand new, never-before-seen developer tools 😉. And you’ll still get rare access to the engineers that build Looker to help you hack.
You’re encouraged to bring your own project ideas, but our educational content and pre-seeded ideas will be particularly focused on:
- Extensions built on the Looker Extension Framework
- Actions and integrations that bring data to life
- Looker Developer Tools
- Embedded data experiences
- Getting started with the Looker API and SDKs
This link will take you straight to the hackathon agenda page.
If you’re not yet registered for JOIN proper, you’ll have to click “Interested” and then Register. If you are registered, then click “Save Seat”! There’s a limited number of slots available.
More detailed information will be sent to those who register. Got questions? Ask em here.
