What is a hackathon?
A very tech-focused coding event where coders, designers and business guys,
within a certain time, work on challenges to create innovative solutions.
At the end of the event the ideas, and ideally the protoypes will be pitched and judged by a jury.
What is special about an online hackathon?
The hackathon takes place completely online.
We provide all appropriate tools so that you can stay in touch with your team,
other attendees and mentors, even if you are not in the same place.
Who can participate in the hackathon? Are there any prerequisites or required skills?
Everyone, who's interested in tech and innovative topics, is very welcome!
No tech or business background needed - just a good amount of energy and willingness to learn and innovate.
Also no experience in hackathons is needed (beginners are welcome!).
I've never done a hackathon before. What should I expect?
You will learn a lot while working in ambitious teams. It's fun - come hack with us!
Who gets the intellectual property rights to the work created by the teams?
The work (codes, data, documents, etc.) created by the teams during the
hackathon will be of their own property. However, ideas presented to the public are freely accessible and usable.
How to apply?
You have to register and get a ticket via Eventbrite.
After you’ve signed up you will get a link by mail. That link you have to use to attend the event.
What do I need?
In addition to an internet connection you should have a computer and other
tools you need (e.g. camera, microfone, charger, mouse, USB drive, adapters).
Can I can take part alone or do I need a team?
You don't need a team in advance! You will be part of a team but most teams will form at the beginning of the hackathon.
In which language will the event be held?
The main language of the event is English which means all talks will be held in English. Nevertheless, you are more than welcome to participate in the hackathon even if your English is not 100% fluent.
You will be tired, but very satisfied at the end. And you will get to know many interesting people ;-)
