ZeroMQ Prague LinuxDays Hackaton (5.10 (Fri) - 7.10 (Sun) 2018)

There's a LinuxDays conference taking place in Prague on 6th and 7th of October (
The Hackaton is being organized as a three day even, starting on Friday, in the premises and under the aegis of this conference.


  • Day 1 - 5 October 2018 (Friday), Edit: Start at 16:00.
  • Day 2 - 6 October 2018 (Saturday)
  • Day 3 - 7 October 2018 (Sunday)

If you're planning to come in early (e.g. Thursday evening) and you let me know, i'll be more than happy to go out for some beers.


We have got a dedicated room on the third floor.

Hackaton Format

This hackaton follows the model developed by Pieter Hintjens for many ZeroMQ workshops.
We will take a theme/goal and work towards it using an organic contract-driven process:
simple RFCs, pull requests and a collection of projects that talk together (yes, it will be just liket the old times ;)).

Because the hackaton is open to conference attendees and general public, there will be a dedicated person available for full begginers and curious by-passers.
We will find an interesting problem to solve and we will slowly learn zeromq by building stuff that solves this problem.

Requirements for Newcomers

Have Docker installed.

Here's a link to a docker image with development tools, zeromq projects and some bindings installed:

Please read the aforementioned that explains HOW to get and use the image.
