Who is it for?
Hackathons are for everyone! Not a techie? No problem. Innovation happens best when people with diverse skill sets coming together. Everyone has something important to offer. This is your chance to bring your creativity and your unique skills and get involved!

What is a Hackathon?
During a hackathon, people from diverse skill sets get together to innovate. Over the course of a day and a half, you’ll collaborate with your team to come up with real-world solutions to a specific challenge.

Hackathons are not just for techies?
Hackathons are no longer just for coders. Diverse viewpoints fuel innovation. Transformative ideas are built when people from different backgrounds and with different skillsets come together.

What if I’ve never participated in a Hackathon before?
No problem! Many people will be new to Hackathons. We will guide you through the whole process.

The event is free to participate in. Food and drink for the event is included.
