29.-30.9.2023, Berlin (with zoom sessions to join virtually)
As people with different gifts we want to work together for half a weekend - translators, developers, designers, "normal" people with a heart for technology and Jesus. We'll mainly work on all different areas of the 4training.net project but other projects are welcome as well! Everybody can work in the area he has experience in - connected with others working on similar things so it's more fun, we can help each other and celebrate all progress!

Who is this for?
For all who like the vision of www.holydevelopers.net or www.4training.net and want to contribute to that: Developers, designers, translators, supporters... we believe that many different people and gifts are necessary to make these dreams real and bring God's Kingdom everywhere, including and using the digital world. If you're unsure if this is for you, ask Jesus and us: He's the head of His body and we try to find our places in that.
What can I do if I can't come to Berlin?
You can join the zoom sessions to see what's going on and you can reserve time to work on stuff wherever you are - even if you're not physically present you can have virtual fellowship as more people are working on similar things and can also help quickly.
I'd love to do something, but I don't really know where and what I can contribute. What should I do?
Register and write about yourself: the gifts you can contribute, what's on your heart... Make a comment and we'll approach you to talk about the different options. We believe that the weekend will be most fun and fruitful if we can organize the different tasks and teams already before. We'll try our best to make that happen!
Does the hackathon cost anything?
Your time and passion :)
We have no registration fee, but we're happy to receive donations for the venue costs. On Saturday you need to take care of food yourself.
Where can I find accommodation?
Ask us, likely we can provide a place to stay for you.
Can I join even if I'm not from Germany?
Sure, you're welcome! We'll keep everything in English.
