Startup Weekend Brisbane 2019 @ River City labs
Feb 15 @ 9:00 am – Feb 17 @ 5:00 pm

Developers. Designers. Marketers. Business Folk.

Startup Weekend is your chance to collaborate and get involved with a group of motivated individuals hell-bent on disrupting their industry of choice.

What can you expect?

Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea. Teams organically form around the top ideas (determined by popular vote). Then, it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation.

The weekend wraps up with teams presenting their startup to local entrepreneurial leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback.It’s not about the prize but it helps.

What they say:

Startup weekend gives you the valuable insight into how to make an idea succeed or fail fast, as Amin Bazzaz and Areej Alsheikh-Hussain, winner of Startup Weekend Women Brisbane 2015 explains:

“Startup weekend was an intense learning bootcamp which helped us to put all theory into action and validate an ideain 54 hours on a weekend. Excellent opportunity to meet like minded people and grow your network, learn heaps from mentors and teammates and get the most out of our weekend.

Air Sponge started with idea of Areej. She pitched her idea of “Tinder for carwash” and Amin joined her team as a tech teammate on the startup weekend. We launched the website and served 5 customers over the weekend and won the startup weekend. we kept meeting after startup weekend and by using startup weekend prize, we registered the company, then applied for ilab Germinate 8 program and got selected as one of 5 teams. later on we decided to shut down the business and currently, while Amin is working as back end developer at Travello, Areej is working as a Business Development Associate for gemaker.”

Seek & DevOps Girls Bootcamp @ Seek Ltd
Feb 16 @ 8:45 am – 5:00 pm

DevOps Girls with the massive support from Seek are hosting a day-long bootcamp to explore all things Serverless!

If you’re looking to be buzzword compliant, ‘serverless’ is on that list. We wanted to create an opportunity for people to learn about the technical concepts and get hands-on exposure in a super supportive and encouraging environment.

This is a one day bootcamp, that will introduce participants to AWS, Lambda, event-driven architecture, infrastructure as code, static website hosting, Serverless Framework.

Programming knowledge is helpful, but not required – code will be provided for you.

Basic command line skills would be very helpful and we would recommend completing a short code academy course on using the command line – (See Resources below)

Throughout the day, participants will first be introduced to concepts at a high level. Then you will get to practise yourself. We will start from deploying a simple website that will have some todos (classic!) and gradually move to more complex things, like an event that will be triggered when a todo is overdue, added, edited or removed.

We will be building on our project throughout the day and it’s all good if you need help catching up because we will have a GitHub repo that will help you make sure you maintain progress.

NOTE, this event has limited spots – please update your RSVP if you’re unable to attend so we can ensure as many people can attend as possible.

What will you expect from the day?

You’ll have a team of supportive people from our industry dedicating their Saturday to your learning and development.

You’ll be able to learn in a multi-modal format, including hands on and you’ll have access to all the learning materials.

You’ll have an opportunity to meet and network with people in your industry.

We’ll have a room with video games and activities for kids.

The bootcamp will be fully catered – note dietary requirements in your RSVP

Things you’ll need:

– a laptop! (but if this is not possible, send us a message)

– an AWS account – (See Resources below)

Techstars Startup Weekend Perth #13 @ Spacecubed
Feb 22 @ 6:30 pm – Feb 24 @ 9:00 pm

Startup Weekend is a 54-hour whirlwind event where you get to be part of building a business in a weekend, Silicon Valley style. It’s about pitching, business model creation, coding, designing and market validation all in a friendly and supportive team environment.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and teams organically form around the top ideas. All ideas, applications and platforms are welcome – remember that the sky is the limit!

How does it work?

We’re mashing the geeks with entrepreneurs and everyone in between, and locking them in a building together for a weekend, pouring in a heap of caffeine and free food, to see what new ideas come out the other end. This 54-hour event brings together creatives, technologists, designers and developers to experiment with rapid idea generation, Silicon Valley style.

It is a fast-paced and highly creative event that challenges everyone who attends to make innovative new projects in 54 hours.

Who can attend?

Anyone. Whether you’re 8 or 88, a painter, actor, software engineer, writer, graphic designer, geek, entrepreneur, photographer, musician, programmer, museum curator, or startup specialist. Whether you have an idea, or have no idea. Everyone is welcome.

What you will get out of it

The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success? Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered citizens who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures or products. Whether participants found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, find a creative collaborator, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to have a heap of fun, and to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
