Magento Hackathon

The first Magento Hackathon was organized by Damian Luszczymak in 2010 in the German city of Herford. The group was very small at that time. There have been 9 developers and they met in the facilities of public high school Herford.

The primary goal was to have a developer meetup for exchanging ideas and get to know each other. After that weekend the participants had been very enthusiastic. They decided to repeat that kind of event, so meetings at Tossens at the German north sea coast and in the city of Essen took place in 2011. After that it was clear that we should do that on a regular basis and more public. The Magento Hackathons in and around Germany were born. Since 2013 the Firegento Association organizes and supports Magento Hackathons.


All inclusive package

The participant get an all inclusive package with healthy and fresh food, snacks and drinks. And best of it: You´ll also get some „Freibier“ at the Oktoberfest!!!



Get a rest after a busy day and before the next Hackathon sessions, check out these comfortable hotels like Motel One or H’Otello or Star Inn or ibis.

Contribution Days

A team of leading Magento core architects has started a new form of worldwide community involvement that will facilitate contributions. Meet Magento Association and its worldwide network of events is the first platform ever to provide Magento 2 developers with a new way to interact with the Magento development team.

Director of Community Engineering Max Yekaterynenko and his team will provide Magento 2 technology deep dives. Contribution Day participants will receive advanced insight into Magento 2 diagnostics and work side by side with Magento core architects to contribute to the Magento 2 core.
