BaselHack – the second

BaselHack is more than a Hackathon – it is a place where people connect, take fun seriously and grow open innovation.
This motto shows that the organizers are very clear that everyone is welcome: Whatever skills you bring, join the BaselHack to think the future together!

When: Saturday 24. November, 09:00 to Sunday 25. November 2018, 19:00
Where: FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Aula, 4142 Münchenstein

Meet visionaries, creatives, technology enthusiasts, UX/UI hackers, code writers, software developers, IT veterans, entrepreneurial thinkers, makers and tech newbies from all corners of the world who care about collaborating on the development of ideas and solutions with the priority on communal problem-solving.
There is no special topic focus, all ideas are welcome at the Hackathon.
Participants can:

- pitch their own ideas,

- join real-life cases from companies,

- get inspired by others and join a team they want to support.

Here is the simple agenda of the Hack: After a short welcome address, pitching begins.

As soon as teams are formed, coding starts. With no official activities until the prototype presentation late afternoon on Sunday, there is plenty of time and support from coaches on site.

There are several events before the Hack weekend with the aim to

- allow participants to get to know each other in advance, maybe even find a team already,

- obtain information about the data and software that will be available at the Hackathon and

- learn about what it takes to get from an inspiring idea to a working solution in a high-power Hacking weekend, especially if it is your first time on a Hack.

All information will be made available online. If ideas are presented that are not based on existing data, the data should be made available at the BaselHack weekend.

Please register as a participant and sign up for the newsletter to get updates about all events and activities beforehand.
