following the WebSummit, in our own community space and incubator
Chainhack, the blockchain hackathon is back for a fourth edition! Second time in Lisbon, Portugal, this year it's going to be a small-sized event with quality people. It's the ultimate place for learning/hacking/networking with your peers from the community.
You will have fun building stuff (there will be swag too)
Even if you are a newbie, don't panic! Some of the best technical experts in the blockchain realm will be there to help you build your project. Come as you are!
and why you should be there
You will build. Most of your weekend will be spent with your team, hacking a product together. Small teams this year, 2-4 people each. Building on existing projects is OK!
No matter your expertise, you will learn something there. Attendees range from newbies to core-devs, everybody here to enjoy.
This is not work. Plenty of time to relax, enjoy a coffee or a pint with amazing people.
Free food, free coffee, a lot of swag to bring home, some cool music, some prizes... and everything else that makes Chainhack unique.
Here is how it works

Only about 10 teams will be part of the event, at least 2 people per team.
You! By default, each coder owns her lines of code, that's copyright. We will encourage you to put your work in GPL, MIT, CC or other open source licenses, but that's your call.

Any! There are APIs to make it simple for you to interact with blockchains without having to learn the core code itself.

Anything you want. Not only Finance, not only commercial ideas. Feel free to work on something stupid/nonsensical.
This will be explained during the hackathon!
