What is a hackathon?

An event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming.
Participants think up an idea, build a team and try to make that idea reality during the event.

What are your plans for Inno{Hacks} 2017?

The hackathon will be a weekend-spanning event, where participants create teams of 2-5 people on site.
There will be 24h to think of an idea and realize it.
They will present their work on Sunday in front of a jury that will award several prizes.
Further details will follow...

Do I stay overnight?

Some people code throughout the night, others leave to catch some rest.
For visitors from afar there are hotels nearby and we try to offer a quiet room where you can sleep.

I'm not good at coding. Is this event suitable for me?

Hackathons are about learning and beginners are welcome as well!
Use the time to learn from your team and/or the internet to advance your project.

What do I need to pay?

Nothing. Well… We charge 15 € for the ticket but you get it back on arrival at the event site.

Are there travel reimbursements?

Not yet.

What should I bring?

A laptop! Seriously.
Apart from that maybe devices that could help your project (Raspberry Pi, Drones, IoT devices, ...)
or stuff for the night (sleeping bag, pillow, ...).
And a lot of enthusiasm helps as well.

Do you have a code of conduct?

Yes! You can find it here.
