Online Hacking Week at The Tor Project

The Tor Project and Tor community is going to be gathering online from June 27th to July 1st this year for a 5 days hackweek.

This is a call for projects for whoever wants to participate, put together a team and hack through that last week of June with us. In the context of this hackweek, a project is anything related to Tor that you can work with other people in 5 days. It could be a coding project or something to analyze data but it could also be a cartoon or anything that do not necesary requires coding skills. You will work on this project during 5 days with other people in your team. At the end we are going to have a demo in a Big Blue Button’s room where your team will present the work you did through the week.

This will be the timeline for the hackweek:

  • Send hackweek project proposals to this portal: Before hackweek begins, start looking for other people to join your team. People will also have the opportunity to join your team on Monday when the hackweek begins.

  • Monday, June 27th: Hackweek begins. The liaisons for each project will present their projects in a BBB room. By this time, you should have a few members of your team already identified.

  • Hack hack hack hack… in whatever way you organize yourself. We will have room #tor in to discuss general hack week things.

  • Friday, July 1st: Hackweek ends. Each team presents the work at 16UTC in the same BBB room.

List of projects proposed:

Each project has a pad with all the information about it as well as how to join.

Update on June 27th: Adding link to where the presentation of projects will be and the list of projects right before the hackweek starts.

Unfortunately I’m new to this, mind showing me the ropes?

Sure. On Monday (27th June) we will have a Big Blue Button call (the link will be shared beforehand) where all project liaisons will present their projects - details about the project, skills required, goals of the project, etc. According to your interests you can then join a team and the teams will work on their projects throughout the week. On Friday, each team will then present their work concluding the hackweek.

You can a see a list of projects that have been proposed on the URL I shared earlier. Do have a look and see which one of them you will be interested to work on during the hackweek.

For any other updates, I recommend watching this space. I hope that helps!
