How does it work?

Register

Let’s start at the beginning – registration. If you wish to participate, you should register. Once registered, on the HackTribe platform you can post your idea and look for teammates or join a team that is lacking teammates. Team formation and idea development will take place until March 8th 17:30. 

Hack

The hacking starts on the evening of March 8th with a short opening ceremony explaining what’s to come, introducing the prizes and evaluation criteria. Then you hack – work in teams and develop your ideas into solutions and prototypes. During the three days, there are four checkpoints with team mentors to ensure you are going the right way. It is mandatory for the teams to be at the checkpoints unless your team mentor tells you otherwise. Expert mentors will be available for consultations and support on March 9. 

Submit

On March 10th, it is time for the final submission of your solutions, followed by demos and pitches in front of the jury. The jury chooses the winners, and they are announced right away. After the hackathon, there are no strings attached; you can freely continue the work on your ideas and solutions.  

Mentoring

To ensure great teamwork and results we are inviting experts in the fields of technology and security to join our forces! If you can spare anything from 2 hours on Saturday, March 9, please join our cause and register to be a mentor at the event website.

Prizes
