FAQ

When does the Jitter start?

It starts at 10.00 am sharp. Registration starts at 9.00.

What venue will the Jitter be in?

See the venue section.

Should I attend all workshops?

Unfortunately, you can’t. Each workshop will be repeated only three times (sorry, the day is just too short) and we have six different workshops (+freestyle session). You can get familiar with up to three new technologies in the workshops but try out all of them in the freestyle session.

What is “FreeStyle” path all about?

In the freestyle path you can hack your own project. If you have your idea developed before the hackathon, you can start working on it from the very beginning of the event. But, if you come up with a great idea during one of the technology workshops you can continue exploring it in the freestyle path instead of going to other workshops. The freestyle path will be running concurrently with the other workshops and features its own dedicated group of mentors.

Should I come with my team or alone?

During the freestyle hackathon you can work on your own, of course, but we encourage you to build a team either before the event or ad hoc once you arrive. The workshops are designed for individuals.

Will there be a competition?

Yes - for the freestyle hackathon we will reward the best projects created in the freestyle zone. You will have to present your freestyle project at the end of the hackathon.

Will there be food and drinks?

Yes!

What should I bring?

You should bring your own laptop and smartphone. Check out the workshop descriptions as well as there might be additional requirements. Oh, and don't forget your power cord.

ORGANIZERS

We created MOBILE WARSAW - a series of technology get-togethers for mobile developers with the goal of building an active community of Mobile Developers in our area.

Wikia company, based in San Francisco, was established in 2004, and since 2006 it has had its R&D center in Poznan. Currently the center is the company’s largest foreign branch employing nearly 40 engineers.

The idea of the project originated from Jimmy Wales – the founder of Wikipedia, who in realizing the idea of a virtual encyclopedia noticed that a lot of interesting and valuable content goes to a “virtual basket " due to their non-encyclopedic nature. He decided to create a space where it can be published and developed.

This is how Wikia came into being. It is an international, online content publishing platform that enables each user to create free wikis, or Web pages on any topic that can be edited by many people at the same time.

Currently Wikia has over 300,000 such sites on various topics generally grouped into sections such as games, entertainment and lifestyle.

Communities of enthusiasts around particular wikis constantly develop the sites enriching them with new content. The company’s employees, on the other hand, continuously develop new and user-friendly functionalities in order to make adding information easier and the appearance of the platform more attractive to visitors.

The service’s software is based on the MediaWikia source code and is made available to users on the open source basis. In other words, any company can apply the solutions proposed by Wikia’s programmers in their own projects.
