School Hackathon

Start your academic year with a Hackathon!

A Hackathon is a unique occasion to spotlight integration and development while providing a professional scope to the event.

Originally, a Hackathon is a gathering of developers with the objective to test and create an application prototype within a few hours. Now today, in collaboration with companies, we use Hackathons to tackle any sort of problem, either technical, business or social.
