🌍 In English

Als offizielles After-Event der DINAcon 2022 bieten die DINAcon HACKnights einen Blick hinter die Kulissen der vorgestellten Projekte und Initiativen mit die Möglichkeit, auf spielerische Art und Weise einen kleinen Beitrag durch Open (Source, Testing, Design, Finance) zu leisten.

Dieses Jahr werden wir etwas Neues ausprobieren. Ein kompakter DINAcon-Nachmittag, an dem wir Fehler und Funktionswünsche der Teilnehmer sammeln, gefolgt von einer Reihe von virtuellen Treffen. Die HACKnights beginnen am Ende des Hauptprogramms und laufen eine Woche lang. Die HACKnight-Challenges werden vom Teilnehmer:innen vorgeschlagen, von der DINAcon-Team moderiert, damit sie zum Konferenzthema passend, nicht als blosses Werbung, und in Verbindung zu den Bedingungen unserer Veranstaltung stehen.

Inspiriert von offenen hackdays und hackergartens, laden wir Menschen mit allen technischen Fähigkeiten herzlich ein. Wir ermutigen uns, Probleme und praktische Aufgaben aus Projekten zu posten, die auf der DINAcon vorgestellt wurden. Alle relevanten und sinnvollen Vorschläge, um Open-Source-Projekte zu starten, zu verbessern oder zu unterstützen, sind willkommen: dies ist eine offene Plattform, fügen Sie Ihre Herausforderungen hinzu und los legen!

Der Startschuss ist sofort nach der offizielle DINAcon-Programm, alle Treffen werden virtuell stattfinden. Anmelden auf dieser Plattform oder per Mail, um eine Kalendereinladung mit Details zu erhalten.

Contribute to open projects in a fun, hands-on way!

The official after-event of DINAcon 2022, our HACKnights are a look behind the scenes of the presented projects and initiatives, and a chance to get started as contributor.

This year we are trying something different. A compact DINAcon afternoon, during which we will collect bugs and feature requests from participants, followed by a series of virtual meetings. The HACKnights start at the end of the main program, and run for a duration of one week. Browse the existing ideas, or add your own to the Challenges. It could be a bug that you noticed in the software, a feature that you would like to see developed, or a question or dataset that we should explore in more depth.

Welcoming people of all levels of technical skill, inspired by open hackdays and hackergartens, we encourage you to post issues and hands-on tasks from projects presented at DINAcon. All relevant and reasonable proposals to start, improve or support open source projects are welcome: this is an open platform, add your challenges and let's dig in.

The kick-off will be at PROGR, immediately after DINAcon, and all meetings will be virtual. Sign up to this platform or by E-Mail to receive a calendar invitation with details.
