Stupid Hackathon



A one-day, small-batch artisanal event where participants conceptualize and create projects that have no value whatsoever, organized by Stephanie, Derek, and Nienke.

The first ever Stupid Hackathon Amsterdam was held on August 13, 2016. We're very proud of our stupid participants, who came up with amazingly stupid ideas. Scroll down for videos and GitHub repos!
