What can we build?

This will be a de-focused hackathon. We expect your ideas will fit in one or other of the tracks. If not, we are ready to dedicate a special corner to the most exotic, impossible-to-clasify, hacker species!

HackTM 2015 will have 6 development tracks:
City Projects

Open data to change our city into a smart one. We challenge the developers to join Smart City track, so we can work together in finding and building smart software solutions that will improve people’s lives in big or small cities.
Stay tuned for project proposals for this track!

Interested, but want some examples? The project proposals are in!
Automotive

The goal of this track is to provide participating teams opportunities to design and rapidly engineer various projects like digital automotive user interfaces and HMIs (Human Machine Interfaces) with real-life tools.
eHealth

If you want to provide genuine, innovative tech solutions to solve global health issues, the eHealth track is dedicated to you.
Game Development

Games always have a special place of their own when it comes to Software development. Whether you are interested in desktop, browser or mobile games, we will address all these possibilities and have a good time and fun doing it.
Open

If you are focused on IOT, hardware or you are interested in web, mobile, graphic design, etc., our mentors are willing to help you develop your ideas and make sure your code is ready for production.

Still don't know what to build? Here are a few ideas!
Junior League Coding

We’ll have a special track dedicated to our ninjas who are still enrolled in secondary school or high-school, but if they want and can contribute, they can also join teams and grown-ups groups registered in any of the other tracks.

What should I bring?

Laptop & charger. Your preferred slippers and coffee mug. Not too many bandwidth-eating devices. Maybe even your sleeping bag.

Is there any food provided?

Definitely yes! We'll have a blood sugar level measuring protocol and we'll strive to keep it in the optimal range. Not with IV glucose, but with pizza, chicken, fries, cookies, etc.

What programming language can I use?

Whatever programming language you want.
We'll reward the participant proving he/she's the only one proficient in a specific programming language.

My question is not on this list.
Who can I contact?

On location, ask the gals and guys signaled as mentors (they're geeky and roaming around the place, you'll notice them). Online, send us an email, we'll reply ASAP.
