Looker's throwing a hackathon in Chicago. A hackathon is an event where people with varied skills and interests come together to build new applications and experiences. This hackathon is for building tools on Looker's data platform, and/or using Looker to construct a great story with data.
Admission to the hackathon is free (and so is the food). We'll also provide special Looker instances specifically created for development during this hackathon.
Anyone can attend the hackathon. No prior experience with Looker or application development is necessary. We'll give you all of the tools you need to have a great time building something incredible.
Anything you can imagine (within reason, of course). Build an integration to a supported external service. Add or create a custom visualization to make your data more interactive. You can even extend one of the existing open-source projects that use the Looker API.
There's still plenty of "hacking" to do - even if you don't write code. For instance, you could add some new functionality to an existing dashboard, gain new insights from a set of data, or add filtering and table calcs. There's room for all that and more.
We’ve made Looker easy for anyone to build on, whether they know how to use it or not. Interested in learning how to model in Looker? We’ll have Looker experts that will help you every step of the way.
Hackathons are about meeting new people and building projects together. If you’re looking to get inspired, check out Looker’s open-source library for cool projects.
If you’re looking to join a team, check out our Discourse channel to view teams that are recruiting.
We'll provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks, but may not be able to accommodate all dietary restrictions. If you have special dietary needs, please make sure to bring food you need to stay energized and keep hacking.
Please ask them on our Community stream.
