About

DO!Hack is an interdisciplinary hackathon. We focus on developers as much as on designers, electro-technicians and creatives. By doing so we hope to help you gather new ideas and viewpoints and get a look into other subject areas to understand each other better. So you don't have to be a designer, developer or electro-technician to be able to apply to DO!Hack.

We are open for anyone, who wants to participate on an exciting event in the very heart of Dortmund. In our opinion Hackathons are an opportunity to learn and to be a part of a team. We provide you with a secure environment so you can gain new insights of mistakes you might encounter during your hacking journey.

During the event our 100 attendees have 24 hours to develop a project in a team. Our topic for this hackathon is smart city. The digital transformation has led to many changes in our daily life. Almost anyone has a mobile device connected to the World Wide Web, so are more and more cars and urban services. If you have a good idea how to make a city smarter be our guest. But don't panic if you don't have an idea. Maybe you'll find someone with an idea in which you are interested in or a team you like to work with and brainstorm together. Of course, you can also talk to our sponsors for inspiration. Also, if you run into any problems during the development, we'll have a whole lot of mentors to help you!
