* The reservation fee of 9€ will be transferred back on showup – or you can donate it <3

General Info

At the end of our fruitful semester we want to celebrate – and how to better do that than with a HACKATHON? :)
A hackathon is a full-day event where people – in our case women*, sorry boys ;) – create their own projects in small groups during the course of a day.
Hint: These projects can be used by YOU as portfolio projects if you’re looking for a job!

You don’t necessarily need to have programming experience to participate – you can also participate in a project as creator, UX/UI/graphic designer, copywriter, creative, organizer, analyst, mentor, and the like.

The event will be held in English.

Please bring your own notebook!

Hackathon – Step-by-step guide

We are really happy that you’ve decided to participate in our hackathon! Here we’ve prepared some useful information for you.
The purpose of the hackathon is not to build a huge project but rather everyone in the team contribute to a prototype, an idea, a representation of a product. We will give you a couple of project ideas and each team choses something to work on.
Everyone will have something amazing to contribute and we’re looking forward to seeing your project presented at the end of the hackathon!
Let’s hack it! :)

1. Find your team

First step we need to decide on topics and to find a team for you.

2. Find your project

Depending on your level and interest we’ve prepared some ideas for creating a project TBA… It could be for instance a web site, an app, a chatbot or an IOT project.

3. Demo your project

Demo of your project! Please no slides, just explain what have you done and your key insights/learnings from your experience.


The Winners!
