Hackathon “Connecting Minds” in Startit center on 20-21 May!

Are you an Android programmer, designer or activist and you want to be the change you want to see? If you are, wait no longer and apply!

The goal of the hackathon is to use our energy and in 24 hours create socially responsible, innovative solutions which will contribute to better communication between experts and institutions from Kosovo and Serbia.

On May 20 and 21 we call upon 20 young creatives from Serbia and Kosovo to apply and be a part of the hackathon which is dedicated to positive change through

  1. The hackathon will gather young programmers, designers and activists around the same goal, to create 5 mobile apps in order to help overcoming boundaries between communities (IT, healthcare, enterpreneurship, the justice system, tourism, …).

Teams will consist of 2 programmers, 1 designer and 1 activist. Meeting new faces is what makes a hackathon complete, and teams will be formed in that spirit at the beginning of the event.

What if there are any complications or technical issues during the hackathon?

Not to worry, there will be one of our mentors-experts with you at all times who will be able to help you to make that step forward. Besides that we encourage all teams to be open to help other teams, given that our goal is a common one.

How much does it cost?

Participating in the hackathon is free. Internet, food and drinks, as well as lodging are all covered, all you have to do is to bring your great vibe, your gear (laptop, charger,…), a tooth brush and something to change into after a hard day’s work.

All participants have to be present on both days of the event.

What if I do not have an idea, but I’d love to join in?

That’s great! The organizing team will be at your disposal to develop an idea together before the event itself.

We believe that a lot can change in 24 hours, do you?
