24 hours. 150 hackers. 1 spirit.

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!
