16th - 17th July 2016 in Dortmund


Meet new people and build great projects - anything from a beer serving robot to the next hot social network!. Creativity is the only limit! Just remember: There are no bad ideas! You can work on anything you want. The only condition is: You will only be judged on what you wrote within these 24 hours.

Get in touch with some of the engineers and recruiters of our sponsors, and make contact. Many companies usually send their developers to hackathons for presenting their API, give technical talks and get feedback about their products, that may have been used during the hackathon.

You have the opportunity to meet fellow programmers from all over the world, exchange your knowledge or even find your future business partner with whom you will found your first start-up.
