For the third time, the NASA Space Apps hackathon[0] weekend returns to
Stuttgart! Sign up now to participate in the biggest hackathon event on
this planet (23. & 24. April 2016). Stuttgart is one of the biggest and
most important aerospace regions in Germany and we are very proud to grow
and support the local space industry and startup scene with this
open-source space event for everyone!

Space Apps is an international hackathon that occurs over 48 hours in
cities around the world. Because of citizens like you, we continue to grow
each year. If you haven't already, join us to share ideas and engage with
open data to address real-world problems, on Earth and in space. Work alone
or with a team to solve challenges that could help change the world. And
everybody can help, diverse backgrounds (software developers, engineers,
artists, journalists, hackers, makers,...) will provide unique solutions to
global problems that nobody thought about before. Check back here to join
Space Apps in the Stuttgart hackerspace shackspace.

The registration is open via Meetup.com[1,2] and SpaceAppsChallenge.org[0].
We will also have data bootcamps before the hackathon weekend. Meet other
space enthusiasts there and start your space project early. We have a
limited amount of places, so please be fast and register your slot today!

Last year, our project BigWhoop were selected #7 out of 900 projects for
the Global People's Choice Awards and it was selected for the International
Astronautical Congress 2015 in Jerusalem. This year's challenges are about
the International Space Station, Journey to Mars, the Solar System, Earth
and Space Technology. Start your team, select your challenge and solve a
global project.
