FAQ

What is the price of admission?

You get FREE admission. Includes air, electricity and WIFI -- plus an enhanced sense of belonging, self esteem and cleverness.

Who can attend?

Snake Milkers, Teddy Bear Surgeons, people of all hair colors, hairless people, water tasters, Hob-nob dunkers and Milka chompers - as well as developers, coders, data fans and anyone who loves to work with Looker.

What can I build?

Anything you can imagine. Build an integration to a supported external service. Add or create a custom visualization to make your data more and interactive. Or or extend one of the existing open source projects that use the Looker API.

You can also build a tree fort, a birdhouse or a lazy susan. But please, do those things at home.

What if I can’t code?

There's still plenty of "hacking" to do if you don't write code. Maybe you want to add some new functionality to an existing dashboard, gain new insights from a new set of data, or add filtering and table calcs. Or maybe you just like events that have the word "hack" in them. We have you covered regardless.

Do I need to know how to use Looker to participate?

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 super attractive, excellent smelling, Looker experts that will help you every step of the way.

What if I don’t have a team or an idea?

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 that have built on Looker. If you’re looking to join a team, check out our Discourse channel to view teams that are recruiting!

What should I bring?
  • A laptop with WiFi connectivity
  • Swagger
  • Your own special keyboard or mouse if you’re one of those peeps
  • That sweater you borrowed from us last October
  • A power supply (You’ll want power for at least 12 hours)
  • Tons of ideas, enthusiasm, energy, and team spirit

We’ll provide food and drinks, but if you have special dietary needs you may want to make sure you bring something for yourself.
