Last year was such a success, we couldn't avoid running the hackathon again. Join us for this weekend of learning, hacking, and building stuff.
The best technical experts in the blockchain field will be there to help and mentor you, we are here to play with technology so no worries if you are a newbie. We expect the event to be full-house again, with participants from all around the globe!
and why you should be there
You will build. Most of your weekend will be spent with your team, hacking a product together. No experience needed, but some homework in preparation might help!
Workshops, talks, mentors. 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, amazing cash prizes...
Here is how it works
World-class experts, to help you during the weekend
We are going to keep you busy...
Without them, this event wouldn't happen!
