What’s the HOCKETHON all about?

  • Day 2: April 20th – 10:00 am until 4:00 pm

*Optional – for those who wish to stay a little longer, you can do so. Kellerkinder decided to open the office on Friday, April 21st, as well. So anyone who wants to stay and work on-site is welcome. They are looking forward to having you there – because more time with the community = the best time anyway.

For those who (still) don’t know what it’s all about, here comes a little HOCKETHON intro:

👉 What is the HOCKETHON? The HOCKETHON is the Kellerkinder hackathon, with a focus on Shopware. It takes place at Kellerkinder headquarters in Hockenheim – that’s why it’s called HOCKETHON – absolutely logical, right!?

👉 For whom? At the HOCKETHON, generally German will be spoken, and the event is addressed to senior-level developers.

👉 Costs? €49.00 incl. VAT – this includes all meals (except breakfast), coffee/tea/soft drinks/water, and an exclusive swag pack.

👉 What’s going on? Of course, the HOCKETHON includes delicious food, cold drinks, exciting conversations, and lots of time among devs. During the coding sessions, all devs work together on topics related to Shopware, preferably in the Shopware core, proposed by the participants. If you have a topic, you briefly introduce it – afterward teams get formed to work on it.
