What is the hackathon?
SEA:hackathon is our virtual two-day event for all those who want to foster sustainable innovation by technological means. Within 48 hours we develop new ideas in heterogeneous teams – this time for creating cities that adapt a circular economy mindset.
And what is an hackathon in general?
The word stems from the combination of ‘hacking’ and ‘marathon’. Originally it referred to the get together of coders but is now used in a broader sense. Nowadays designer, entrepreneurs, ecologists etc. are equally involved in a hackathon. Technological understanding and coding skills are an asset but no requirement. Our experts and coaches make sure to take everybody on this journey through the world of tech-solutions – whether hippie, hipster, hustler or hacker.
