FAQ

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a full-time event over the course of several days where participants with different backgrounds team up and create solutions to real-life challenges. They use different methods, technology, campaigns, and mentoring. The weekend results in prototypes, fresh new concepts, and innovative usage of technology.

What is an online/virtual hackathon?

In a virtual hackathon all participants are remotely connected. Irrespective of their location, everybody can participate in the hackathon and help to build great new products and services. To enable the interaction we will provide a Slack channel for communication, screen sharing tools, and a digital whiteboard.

Who can participate?

We welcome people of all job descriptions, whether you're a designer, developer, marketer, entrepreneur, project manager and so on. Diverse groups mostly work incredibly well together to produce the best results.

What if I sign-up alone or don't have a team?

Don't worry if you don't know anyone attending. Teams will be formed before the hackathon and during hackathon. We do extensive team building and help you to find the perfect team with great team members.
