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 exclusively online. We provide the appropriate tools so that you can stay in touch with your team and work on your solution online. Also mentors will support you remotely.

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 is German which means most of the talks will be held in German. Nevertheless, you are more than welcome to participate in the hackathon even if you don't speak German. Last years' experience: we had some non-German speaking teams and it went pretty well.

Anything else?

You will be tired, but very satisfied at the end. And you will get to know many interesting people ;-)

Code of Conduct

Prototypes should be developed during the hackathon. Coming with pre-made solutions is not the point of a hackathon ;)
