In parallel with the general Hack the City prizes, RSI Radiotelevisione Svizzera will award a special prize for those ideas and projects who have a close affinity with the concepts of “Public television” and audience proximity.
Will there be a (decent) internet connection?
Of course! We will try to give you the best internet connection available to ease your journey and your work during the event. For free (thanks to our sponsors)! Also, we will be generous with the power supply: we will have enough power to turn on the lights of a small village. Again for free (and again, thanks to our sponsors)!
We won’t provide you chargers, routers, switches, etc. or any kind of equipment. Read more on »
