Ada Lovelace Hackathon

Ada Lovelace Hackathon

Saturday 14th November

10:00 – 18:00

Oxford Hackspace, Oxford Centre for Innovation, New Road, Oxford, OX1 1BY.

Celebrate Ada Lovelace’s 200th birthday in style by joining the Ada Lovelace hackathon! We’ll be using the equipment and expertise of the Oxford Hackspace to create new physical computing projects, inspired by her works. We’ll have access to 3D printing, laser cutting, electronics, CNC machines, and much more.

Projects suggested so far include:

Other things that Ada was known for include the Bernoulli numbers, her interest in gambling, ‘Flyology’, and her prediction of computer-generated music:

“Supposing, for instance, that the fundamental relations of pitched sounds in the science of harmony and of musical composition were susceptible of such expression and adaptations, the engine might compose elaborate and scientific pieces of music of any degree of complexity or extent.”

Every level of skill is welcome!

We’re asking for £5.00 from each participant to cover costs. Click here to sign up.

We’re very grateful to our gold sponsor, IT Specialist Recruiters Corriculo.
