Design Tools Hackathon 2018
October 25 - 26
WIX Offices, Tel Aviv
Shaping The Future
of Design Tools
After last year’s successful Sketch Plugin Hackathon, Design Tools Network is back to organizing another big event! This time the topic is broader and we involved more tool makers to provide technical support for the participants.
The landscape of design tools has changed enormously the past year. Every month another tool is released or a major update is announced. More importantly, a lot of them became extensible. This calls for another hackathon!
Join us during 2 days of hacking on digital product design tools and meet. passionate makers from all over the world who are excited about pushing the industry forward. In addition, we serve you a side program with inspiring presentations by leading design tool makers during both mornings.
The event is kicked off with a morning full of talks by industry leading tool makers. Expect to get inspired by insights on custom tool making, and get a sneak peek into the future of extensibility with technical talks on APIs.
The main event is to hack on new tools or extensions by collaborating with other participants. We have technical support during both of these days, provided by our partners:

Application Deadline Friday October 5, 6PM CEST
We’ve worked together with our partners to provide scholarships for more than 20% of the participants. A scholarship covers the cost of travel and stay in Tel-Aviv for one participant. There is an extra survey for this which you’ll find at the end of the application form.
Our survey system allows us to factor diversity into admission, which helps to counteract systemic biases and prioritize access to the event for underrepresented folx and independent makers.
Scholarships are intended for those who demonstrate financial need, students, and members of underrepresented communities at tech events.
