Hack the City is the first hackathon of Ticino and the first open-air hackathon of Switzerland.
After the successful first edition held in 2015 during the last weekend of August, the 2nd edition of the Ticino’s hackathon dedicated to developers, designers and makers returns this year more engaging and interesting than ever.
In addition to the noteworthy cash prizes (more than CHF 10’000 in 2015) and the opportunity to make your ideas happen, this year’s edition is even more attractive for all those hackers who will attend the 48 non-stop hours programming marathon.
Attendees do not have to be coding or design experts. The only requirement is to bring ideas that can turn into viable solutions to everyday/real problems. Among the other attendees there will certainly be developers, designers and entrepreneurs able to get involved and bring your projects to live. These projects will then be eligible for the prizes assigned by our expert’s panel.
Further information and details (including prizes, themes, and sponsors) will be revealed during the Summer.
Hack the City 2016 will be held in Piazza Indipendenza in Chiasso, from August the 26th to August the 28th, 2016.
