Travel hackathon: Code with us, as THack returns to Berlin
Like to travel? Love to code? Want to tackle interesting problems using the latest APIs for a sector touching everybody’s lives?
Join 100 developers and create new digital products, tools and services at THack Berlin, a travel hackathon happening March 4-6 at the beautiful betahaus.
Tnooz has been proud to try to support developers with its global series of THacks that have brought hackathons to four continents in the past year.
Past participants have gone on to achieve cool new milestones, such as Hitlist getting deals with Booking.com and Skyscanner and TravenUp getting funding.
Last year we had a blast in Berlin, and a lot of fantastic projects came out of the hackathon. We’re back this year with more prizes, bringing together developers and the travel industry to invent mobile applications for the airline passenger and in-destination experiences.
THack Berlin is open to individual developers and teams up to five members who will compete on-location for up to Euro 5,000 in cash and other prizes. Participation by developers is FREE and registration is required.
NOTE: All hackers must compete on-site. No virtual projects will be accepted.
Networking and team-building begins Friday, March 4, 6 pm to 8 pm. Teams are encouraged to form before the event. Hacking begins Saturday, March 5 after check-in and introductions at 9 am and continues until Sunday, March 6 at noon.
Developer presentations to a panel of expert judges will follow hacking, and THack concludes at 6 pm after prizes are awarded.
THack will provide table-top space, power, wifi and A/V presentation equipment. Developers must bring their own laptops, software tools and special presentation devices (e.g., wearable tech). Food and beverage will be provided.
