Conduct

Our code of conduct can be found here: http://wiki.nhshackday.com/wiki/NHSHackDay-Code-Of-Conduct

Learning

Lessons learned from previous NHS Hack Days:

Can you organize one for my company?

http://www.openhealthcare.org.uk also run focussed paid hack days for profit - this means people work on what you want them to but we take a cut for organizing and you pay the developers for their time.

Planning a hackday

* Is there a page on the Wiki with precisely where the venue is, map, directions for driving/public transport, parking arrangements etc?

* Is there a page with accommodation recommendations ?

* Is there a page outlining the schedule ?

* Have you set up a lanyard ?

* Have you ordered/arranged stickers/tshirts/etc ?

* Have you arranged "Prizes"/thought about the format?

* Is there a page anywhere with a list of the judges?

* Have all attendees been pointed at the Judging Criteria ?

* Are there any sponsors yet? Are they on the Sponsorship wiki page?

* Can we make all of the above clear on the front page of the wiki?

* Have we picked venues for social events at the evening times?
