Swung Amstel Hack 2020

Amsterdam, The Netherlands ยท info at amstelhack2020.site

The Software Underground Amsterdam Hackathon will be held on June 6th and 7th 2020 at the Shell Technology Centre Amsterdam (STCA). Join the Software Underground group on Slack (#amstel-hack-2020) and help us to organize the Hackathon!


  • Is there a specific theme you ask?? As always, the Software Underground hackathons are about the people and about having fun but the organizers have an idea in mind for the Amstel Hack: let's do a Fullstack hack or better... a FullstHack! Anything that has to do with Docker, Kubernetes, Flask, Databases, cloud providers, ... It would be great to try to build a fullstack web app to perform some simple ML/DL tasks where each group/team would work on a separate microservice. Each microservice is then transformed to a Docker image and then we orchestrate everything with Kubernetes and host it on AWS/GCP/Azure. Of course, this is just an idea and everyone will be able to propose projects and pitch them to the participants at the beginning of the hackathon. Stay tuned for more info.
  • Over the same weekend, on the other side of the pond, another Subsurface Hackathon will take place in Houston. We will try to set up a couple of collaborative projects between the two hackathons!
  • Matt Hall wrote a blog post about the Amstel Hack and two other hackathons organized by the Software Underground community.
