Music Hackday Berlin This Weekend

music-hackdayThe 2nd Music Hackday is scheduled for this weekend, September 18-20th in Berlin:

The main goal of the event is for participants to rapidly prototype and build new projects, working through the night to complete and present them the following day. They have only this weekend to conceptualize, build, & present their projects. Hardware meets Software meets Online, all connected via music.

This event is about doing & not about just talking. Sessions will be very limited and after that its all about building and realizing real products.

Details below.
