Don't miss these 2 next public events

Crypto-Apero (Thursday 8th March) & Hack4Kids @ Game of Code (Saturday 17th March - Sold Out)

Dear Hack4Kids follower, We would like to invite you to the next public events that will take place in March:

Thursday 8th March 2018: Crypto-Apero - Journeys within Big Brother’s Blues (for adults) – language: English (traduction en français possible si besoin)

Saturday 17th March 2018: Hack4Kids – développe ton jeu vidéo! / develop your own video game! (for children) – languages: French & English

Crypto-Apero

Designed & taylored (with love) for an adult audience

Journeys within Big Brother's Blues

Voulez-vous blockchainer avec moi ce soir?

Ubiquity is depressing. Should Orwell's fantasies be expressed today, Big Brother would have the blues, overwhelmed by the amount of data available and the behaviors of all involved actors. As the concept of privacy becomes meaningless and surveillance becomes a social norm, this raises a core question: in the end, who is Big Brother?

We will try to answer this question by impersonating Big Brother as 3 specific journeys: adventures in Corporate Land, discoveries in Governmental Grounds, and finally you and me – the general public (a.k.a BitCoin Land). We will do several onsite demonstrations, for the first time in a crypto-apéro.

Practical information

Practical knowledge, no boredom and tomato juice. Crypto-Apero is a free general public information event on information Security, co-organized by SECURITYMADEIN.LU and Rotondes. No registration required.

Hack4Kids

7-12 years old will hack & have fun!

Develop your own video game!

Note: Event is sold out

Like last year, this Hack4Kids is organized in the frame of “Game of Code” - a unique Luxembourgish Hackathon which gathers a hundred of professional and enthusiastic developers from all around Europe - and will be a simplified version of the challenge targeting adults.

This special Hack4Kids edition targets children aged from 7 to 12 years old and will teach them how to develop a game based on the Scratch platform. The goal of this workshop is to promote teamwork and to make children discover the different key steps of a hackathon from the concept formalization to the technical development and finally the presentation of the outcomes. Children will be able to choose the main game’s concept in order to get the control of the game’s creation.

This game is for beginners, no particular prerequisite knowledge is required (except the desire to discover).

This Hack4Kids will be given in French and in English. This event is free of cost!

Click here to register your child! Note: Event is sold out

Kindly use 1 ticket per child – 20 seats available – parents can stay with the kids if needed Hackathon “Game of Code” – Hack4Kids – Saturday 17th March 2018 – 10 AM to 12.30 PM – Forum Gesseknäpchen, Luxembourg
