Come and join us in Amsterdam on Saturday April 30th, 2016 for the very first Hackathon focusing on De Pont!

Throughout the day, computer programmers, game designers, animators, software developers, and creative coding enthusiasts will collaborate on creating their own version of De Pont ferry journey.

Get tickets!

Time: 10.30 to 23.30
Location: Lava Lab (Asterdwarsweg 5, Amsterdam)


Program Hackathon (tickets sold out)

10:30 – 18:00

Places for this hackathon are limited! Buy your tickets here. Tickets are 20 euro and include lunch, a super fancy dinner by John Pastinaak (De Ruimte), and snacks + drinks during the day event.
We’ll be making movies, games or interactive storytelling experiences on the theme of the ferry that crosses the IJ river to Amsterdam North.
Some VR related experience (Unity, 3D-modeling, storytelling, etc.) is handy but not absolutely necessary – we’ll guide you through the basics!
Submarine Channel will make a selection of the final projects. These projects will be published on Submarine Channel and De Pont website and will be presented at a De Pont showcase at EYE film museum later this year.
