Other Important Info

When will the teams be formed?

Teams will be formed on the day, so don’t worry about that for now. Please think about what skills you contribute, and what you would like to learn – you will need that information.

What’s the design challenge?

There will be one challenge for all teams, that will be announced on the day. No need to prepare anything! It’s not a competition and there is no prize to win.

What happens to the ideas we come up with?

To facilitate the free exchange of ideas, all outputs, visualizations and other contributions you make during the day must be contributed under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license.

What do I need to bring?
Food and drink

We won’t be providing food and drink for you (unless we find some last-minute sponsor). There’s a shop inside the building we’re in at City University, you can buy drinks, snacks and sandwiches there. For lunch, it would be great if you could bring your own, and even greater if you could bring some to share, potluck style.
