Hack Week starts Hacking for Humanity next week

It’s back. No, not the McRib. It’s Hack Week.

The coveted Hack Week 21 runs from June 27 to July 1 and has both virtual and physical participation elements. Hack Week is put on for openSUSE contributions and gives any open-source contributor and SUSE employees a playground to experiment, innovate, collaborate and learn for an entire week.

People all over the world can create, view or join projects on hackweek.opensuse.org. The projects range from the packaging of freeware games to improving full-disk encryption and from learning network related knowledge to writing a software.opensuse.org replacement. There is even a project using solar panels to regulate water heating. There are more than 80 projects for this year’s Hack Week.

Companies, hobbyists and technologists are encouraged to participate. There is no affiliation one needs to participate in Hack Week.

The efforts are all about being innovative and providing solutions for users, developers and industry. The theme for this Hack Week is Hacking for Humanity!

Hack Week has been running since 2007 and you can find out how it works by joining a project.
