Hacker House Melbourne Wrap-up!

Last week was huge for the Solana Australia Community of Buildooors! It was a pleasure to see a huge amount of people building on Solana all at one event in Port Melbourne, Australia. The Melbourne Hackerhouse event ran across 5 days between the 20th to the 24th of Feb.

Check out some sweet pro-video here of the event including cameo appearances by yours truly.

The Huge Timber Yard Venue was Amazing!

Solana Hackerhouse events are world-class. Everything from the week-long packed agenda, working spaces were full of devs & creatives, music & lighting vibes were all spot on.

The beer garden was epic with fantastic lunches served for the almighty buildooors.

Solana Pay + Decaf + Samo Collab for Some πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Melbourne Coffee

Both Coffee and Samo Merchandise were available to Hackerhouse attendees payable via Solana Pay, Decaf & Samo/USDC. Everytime you bought a coffee you would get a 50% discount and receive 100 SAMO coins. The coffee was delicious with some people becoming caffeine addicts having 15+ cups and raking in the SAMO’s.

A Big Week with a Packed Agenda

In traditional Solana Hackerhouse fashion the whole week was packed out with fun events, solana updates, ecosystem project presentations, industry panels, developer workshops, VC pitch and a project demo day!

A summary of each day’s agenda was provided below by the Official Hackerhouse Twitter.

Sohrab from Lab Eleven run an awesome workshop helping new developers build on Solana with the Better Call Sol app.

Solana Mobile had a Huge Presence at the HH & Preview Event

The Solana Mobile team were out in force running Saga information & developer presentations during the Hackerhouse. They also ran a Preview night earlier in the week going into more details about the upcoming phone and dropping some alpha! Great to see the “Wen Australia?” questions being answered about 5 mins into their video!

The Solana Mobile Saga was out in full display with touchable DVT-1’s running at a Saga Genius Bar table in the Hackerhouse.

Huge Thanks to the Solana Foundation Organisers & Planning Teams

You know who you are but all in all, the whole week was amazing! Looking forward to see more big events like this in the future in Australia!
