Event starts at 6:30 pm
Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong,
We will be kicking off the bootcamp with a sharing by members of Plain Exchange, an AngelHack Hong Kong Champion and HACKcelerator Champion, on building incremental "pretotypes" to prove assumptions (right or wrong) quickly without using up too much resources.
The second part of the session is where attendees can get their hands dirty - We will go through the prototyping process and introduce resources for inspiration as well as prototyping. By the end of the session, you will be able to make a simple wireframe of Facebook and prototype with animations and mirroring.

Long Hoang: I am a Vietnamese who was born and raised up in Germany. Entrepreneurship and Computer Science has been my passion for a long time. My story begins with a website which I created when I was 11-years old. I needed to fake my identity to be able to rent web servers, but soon I earned my first money with simple apps and online services. Today, I am 24-years old and was involved in several startups in Germany and Hong Kong. My technical expertise are in Robotics, embedded systems and backend development.
The Startup Weekend HKU Bootcamp series is co-organised by the team behind TecHKU, the HKU Journal of Technology.
