AWS Cloud environment
We prepared an AWS account for each team. These accounts have a budget with which you can use most of the basic services.
For sure, you can use any other cloud provider for your prototyping. However, paid services are only offered on the provided AWS accounts.
In case you need more advanced setup or services, please contact Björn Zucha or Arne Weiner via Slack.
Raspberry Pi Zero
One Raspberry PI will be given to each team. The usage of the Raspberry PI is of cause optional.
If you want to use it, please help yourself with the centrally provided sensors, bread boards, wires, etc.
Please find below some helpful instructions on how to setup your Raspberry PI if needed.
In case of any questions, please contact Yannik Kasper
A detailed quick start guide can be found here: Raspberry Setup Guide
Slack will be our main communication tool throughout the event.
In addition to one global information and one overall IT-Support channel, each team member will have their private space for quick picture and link sharing.

Hackspaces at WickedGrounds
We’ll be hacking at WickedGrounds, Generaal Vetterstraat 55, 1059 BT Amsterdam, Netherlands
Fridges are stocked, coffee machines running, and dinner will be served!
We will have joint lunch and dinner at dedicated times (see Agenda for Friday and Saturday) to mingle and chat or exchange ideas about the hacks.
Please feel comfortable around our offices. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to any of the team members at any time.
Sleep at Olympic Hotel
We will be staying at the Olympic Hotel, IJsbaanpad 12, 1076 CV Amsterdam, The Netherlands
It’s only 15min walking distance to our Hackspace, thus we are happy to move our legs after a long day of hacking.
