If you want to organize a Hackergarten for the first time, it is a good idea to have visited another Hackergarten as a participant yourself. Then of course you need a room where the Hackergarten can take place. There must be enough connection possibilities (electricity) for the notebooks of the participants and a WiFi with Internet access. Every Hackergarten offers drinks, snacks and pizza for the participants. The pizza is for the break in between, which is very important for networking. We do not order one pizza for each participant, we simply put together a selection of different pizzas. Not everyone always eats a whole pizza and so there is less waste. A formula that has proven itself in Lucerne, for example, is "number of participants multiplied by 0.8, rounded up to a whole number". 😀
In order to facilitate the organization, we recommend the use of Meetup. This platform has proven itself at many events, e.g. in Basel and Lucerne. We are happy to add your Hackergarten to our list of events. You can fork our repository, add your event to the file events.json and create a pull request.
