Hack Over 2 Days

On Saturday, we will commence a 24 hour hackathon and bring everything to a close on Sunday afternoon. We will conclude the hackathon with demos and award winning teams with stellar prizes from all our lovely sponsors.


Real Food, not Junk Food

How will you survive an all nighter of building, coding, and designing? With the right fuel & energy for your body! We’ll be providing healthy and tasty snacks and meals to keep your mind, body, soul balanced while hacking. Harmony is everything, especially when you’re busy coding.


Relaxation and Exercises

It’s important to take a break every once in a while. We’ll have a designated relaxing area and a coach to help you stretch your muscles and reboot your body and mind.


All Hacks Accepted

We know most of you will participate in software hacks, but we also welcome hardware hacks and any other category you think of. We’re ready to build a product and work on a project for 24 hours surrounded by like-minded people. Programmers, designers and individuals with lots of great ideas are encouraged to apply.


Our Application Process

We want everyone to be successful, and for that reason, we need a nice blend of skills and talent. Everybody who wants to attend will be considered, no matter if you are a code beginner or expert. You have a great idea and basic skills in HTML or the App Inventor? Perfect, you are welcome! You are a coding star? Great, we want YOU to apply!
