What

Amped is the hack-day, reloaded: high energy, diversity, and breaking the hacker stereotype. If geeks are the new rockstars, then Amped is our Lollapalooza. And even better, thanks to our partners, Amped is free!

How does it work?

Regardless of what you do on the web, at Amped there'll be a challenge to engage you, and gurus on hand to guide and inspire.

Prizes

Want to know what you are playing for? We'll let you know soon, but last year's winners were flown by us to Tokyo to show case their entry at Web Directions East. Plus there's a tonne of amazing prizes from our partners to be won.

Not a moment wasted

Amped is a high voltage 10 hours of non stop hacking, workshops and more followed by an amazing party, with lavish catering all the way.

Why?

Amped's all about exploring, learning, playing with new technology, new ideas, and celebrating design and development. But places always go fast so sign up now!

Challenges

With Amped, we've taken the traditional hackday and reinvented it so it's no longer only for hard core hackers and developers. On the day there'll be challenges focussing on front end design and development, interaction design, information visualization, and more, as well as fun fast activities to liven things up.

Amped Unplugged in Seattle will focus on mobile app development. And it's not just for developers, but

  • graphic designers
  • UX experts
  • Interaction Designers
  • and more

Whatever your skill or passion when it comes to technology and the web, there'll be a challenge to engage you, and mentors on hand to help bring out your best.
