Get Your Laptops And Lederhosen Ready!

Are you not able to attend the BILT Asia because it is too far away or the dog ate your passport? Then we have another proposition for you; our friends with the AEC Hackathon are going to Munich on March 31st to April 2nd (so if the dog really ate your passport, you should be good if you are from a country in the Schengen-zone ;-)

It will also be an opportunity to give direct feedback on BILT to Silvia Taurer; who will be there for the weekend.

The AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) Hackathon is a weekend of geeking at its’ finest. It gives those designing, building and maintaining our built environment, the opportunity to engage, collaborate and interact on multiple aspects of the building industry. Not all built environment professionals have to code or have much background with tech. Just come with your knowledge, an open mind, collaborative spirit, and willingness to solve Mon-Fri problems leveraging various kinds of technology.

They have shaped an exhilarating Program on Robotics, Generative Design, IOT, AR/VR and web services for you!

Check out some of their speakers:
Matt Jezyk, Senior Product Line Manager, AEC Conceptual Design Products, Autodesk (USA)
Jaime Ronsales, Senior Developer Consultant FORGE, Autodesk (USA)
Maximilian Thumfart, Developer of Grevit, Dynamo for Rebar, Dynamo PDF (UK)
Robin-Manuel Thiel & Malte Lantin, Technical Evangelists, Microsoft Developer Experience (GER)
