An fully online, international hackathon that unifies “best brains” to fight the pandemic. Hack Kosice Digital, supported by Major League Hacking, is a full weekend online event so you can get enough of sleep! We will be pushing the winning projects to health authorities!
What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is a focused 24-hour event where students come together in small teams to share ideas and build something new and exciting, alongside a whole bunch of like-minded people. You learn immensely with the help of mentors, interact with companies and have fun! Hackathons are very beginner friendly!
What's in it for me?
As a participant, you get the following:
- A weekend of innovation and fun with 250 smartest peers
- Interaction with top tech companies in the region
- Workshops and talks by experienced professionals (more info on that later)
- Free food, drinks & swag
If you wish to take another role (e.g. sponsor, mentor, speaker), please do contact us!
How much does it cost?
Nothing. Attending Hack Kosice is 100% free, and we’d like to thank our awesome sponsors who make it possible!
In addition to that, you will enjoy a lot of free food and swag during the event.
