Due to the COVID-19, most of us are confined at home wondering how to spend time at home, while trying to not lose the fight against boredom. For this reason, Hackers@UPC has raised an awesome initiative: an online hackathon! This way, hackathon lovers can spend their time at home doing what they love the most.
If you love hackathons and want to spend an awesome day, this is for you. No need to be a student or have previous knowledge! We encourage you to make great projects! Either related to COVID-19 or not... your imagination is your limit.
Just click on the button above and on the Hackathon day you will receive instructions on your email with the information and the schedule of all the things we have prepared!
You can develop where you feel more comfortable... Your bedroom, the kitchen, the sofa, the bathroom... But please STAY AT HOME! We will soon update you with how to connect with the rest of the community!
This hackathon will be really special. The duration will be 12 hours, starting at 12pm and finishing at 12am. All the communication will be carried out online by using the following applications:
The server to host all the event, we will have a lot of voice and normal chats to speak to each other while we are all programming in the projects.
A part of all the hacking, Hack From Home will host some incredible talks and workshops with different topics and amazing speakers to learn about tech topics!
As you have guessed, all the organizers will be in our homes too and we will control the server and guide you throughout the event.
We are preparing an amazing day for all of you so you can have the hackathon spirit at home! Our main objective is for you to learn and have an awesome time, therefore competitiveness is not encouraged. There will not be neither prizers nor winners.
