Shopify Hackfest in Waterloo!

David Underwood


Unfortunately we didn't have enough interest in this event and had to cancel it. However, we are running an event in November to celebrate us moving into our new offices. Check it out here:

Hackers assemble! Shopify is going to be in Waterloo on October 15th to co-host a Hackfest with our friends at VeloCity. If you're unaware, a Hackfest is a day-long event where you can come out and turn weird and wonderful ideas into Shopify Apps with the help of our developers. At the end of the day we'll judge the entries, and the developers of the top three will win Apple gear.

No app ideas? No problem! We'll come armed with a multitude of suggestions for you. All you need to bring is yourself and your laptop in order to participate. We'll even provide free breakfast and lunch to keep you fueled throughout the day.

What to Expect:

  • To learn loads of cool new things.
  • Improve you technical Skills.
  • Meet and network with some awesome people!
  • Share your ideas and opinions with fellow developers.
  • Enjoy food, drinks and videogames.
  • Win wicked Apple prizes!
