What is a hackathon?
A sprint-like 48h event where participants team up and create solutions to real-life challenges in an intense period of time. Using creativity, technology and mentoring, the weekend results in prototypes, fresh new concepts and innovative usages of tech.
What is an online/virtual hackathon?
In an online or virtual hackathon, all participants are remotely connected. Irrespective of their location, hackathon enthusiasts can participate and demonstrate their skills on an online hackathon platform using various tools.
Who can participate?
We welcome people of all job descriptions, whether you're a designer, developer, marketer, entrepreneur, project manager, therapist or sexologist. Diverse groups often work incredibly well together to produce the best results. You must be at least 18 years old.
How big should be the team?
We find that a team of three to five works best. It's large enough to have diverse skills, yet small enough to get to know your team members well in a short space of time.
What if I sign-up alone or don't have a team?
Don't worry if you don't know anyone attending. Teams will be formed before hackathon and during hackathon. There will enough time to mingle and get to know other attendees and ideas.
Do I need to be able to code?
You can participate with any level of IT skills, even if you haven't written a single line of code. Understanding the basics of IT is a plus.
During this hackathon can I work only on new ideas or on an existing product or solution?
It will be allowed to develop both new ideas and improve existing products and solutions. In the case of existing solutions, especially will be evaluated the work done during the hackathon. This event is not intended to promote commercially available products.
Is participation free of charge?
Participation in the event is free of charge, at the same you have the opportunity to donate to the association "Papardes zieds", whose mission is to ensure that everyone's sexual and reproductive rights are implemented so that everyone has access to quality services and choices are made based on quality information
