(Mario) Party Superstars!

Having started the last lap of the race we want to share some of the fun we’ve had at camp. Both within our team and in collaboration with others. Having been placed in the centre of the room, it has been an utter privilege and an honor blasting mario tunes for everyone’s enjoyment.

We are all rocking matching outfits, even taking into account other people’s nostrils, by bringing more than one outfit!

Other notable features of the camp includes a lot of bananas. Cut-out bananas and 3d-printed bananas, of course! Wouldn’t it be easier to use actual bananas, you might ask. Well of course it would – but then we wouldn’t be able to have arts and crafts sessions!

We have also given and received help throughout the event. Here are some photos of Herman helping INtendo DS with App Service config, and us receiving help with some prototyping:

Nighttime Progress: A Snapshot of Dedication

As the night deepens at the hackathon, our team’s resolve only strengthens. With the outside world cloaked in darkness, the glow of our monitors lights up our determined faces. Remi delves into the heart of game development, fine-tuning mechanics to ensure our game is as engaging as it is seamless. His dedication to crafting an immersive experience is a beacon of our team’s passion for excellence.

In parallel, Sindre channels his creativity into Power Page styling and design, focusing on creating a visually appealing and intuitive user interface. His efforts to blend form with function are pivotal, ensuring that our project not only captivates but is also accessible and enjoyable for users. Together, their work epitomizes our team’s dynamic capabilities and unified goal: to deliver a project that stands out for its innovation and user-centered design, proving that even as the night wears on, our spirit and productivity soar.

Happy Camper + Community Champion

Today we upgraded our camp with some homemade pennant, to keep our spirit on top for the rest of the hackathon. We are beyond happy with our outfits also, giving us the kindergarten employees and 80’s family look and feel <3

Our designer also helped SuperINtendo with their wireframes and design, going from zero to hero in just 30 minutes!

Solo Adventurer No More!

In the vast landscape of the ACDC Hackathon event, there exists a lone adventurer, navigating the intricate realms of technology with only a keyboard and a dream. Meet David, a one-person team determined to conquer the challenges of solo development!

As fate would have it, our paths crossed, and we saw the spark of brilliance in David’s endeavors. Recognizing the potential for growth and innovation, we decided to extend a helping hand to our solo coder friend and include him in our team! Remarkable team spirit, don’t you think?

Welcome to our adventure, David!


Coommunity Champioon with Cake

Several teams had risen before dawn, and it had been hours since they had breakfast. Sensing it was an opportune moment for a treat, Team Boouvet decided to bring out some cake. Dennis had prepared a delightful French apple cake. Ginevra took the initiative to visit each team, offering cake and words of encouragement.

She even gathered snacks from the other teams!

French Apple Cake – Recipe from a French aunt I know from Cannes, ranked by priority:


  • Peel at least 5 apples and cut into 8 small wedges, cut away the hard parts.
  • Flambé apples with butter, sprinkle sugar on it. Feel free to pour a little cognac or Grand Marnier liqueur – pour 6-7 spoons of cognac/liqueur.
  • Simmer and stir until the apples become soft. (approx. 5 min).


  • 12 tablespoons of wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder mixed well with wheat flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 7 tablespoons milk
  • 6 tablespoons soy oil/sunflower oil
  • 3 large eggs (4 small)
  • Whisk everything into a batter, best result with an electric whisk.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for 22 minutes. (Add extra last minutes and monitor it so that it does not burn the top).
  • Take out and put aluminum foil over and let it bake the dough, usually 10 more minutes. But poke a hole in the middle and feel if the dough is done enough).


  • Melt 100g butter in low heat from a small pot or microwave (not frying hot)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 raw egg
  • Stir and mix together. When the cake is done, let it rest for 10 minutes – brush the surface so that the glaze covers over.

    Serve with vanilla sauce if you want.

Each team member who enjoyed the cake is warmly invited to show their appreciation by giving Dennis a hug.

Retro update!

We clain for badges:

  • Happy Camper – for using a lot of extraordinary goods like Lego building, game consoles and a lot of sweets
  • Community Champion – for encouragin other teams build something cool, inspire by old nintendo and sharing the sweets
  • Remarkable Teamspirit – for keeping an incredible team spirit

In a world where technology moves at the speed of light, it’s the nostalgia for the past that often brings us together, grounding us in the shared memories of simpler times. This sentiment is beautifully captured in the latest night update from Nintendo, a surprise that has sent waves of excitement through the team!

Now we have two oldest nintendos!

And the Nintendo GAMEBOY:

And, naturally, the LEGO serves to enhance team spirit.

Keeping up the spirit and championing the community!

The team is maintaining their exceptional spirit, working tirelessly into the night and starting bright and early.

Of course, having warp pipes that burst with candy always boosts morale, even in the early hours.

Speaking of candy, we continue our role as community champions, assisting other teams with technical inquiries and, in turn, receiving support ourselves (shout out to Peaches and the Donkeys!).

We also focus on maintaining the judges’ blood sugar (and liquid) levels, something we believe is important for the community.

We also continue to help out in other ways, embodying the true spirit of the competition.
