What's a Hackathon?

A hackathon is a dynamic and collaborative gathering where participants come together to unleash their creativity and innovation by working on a project.

Whether it's crafting cutting-edge software applications, developing innovative hardware solutions, designing user-friendly interfaces or even exploring new realms of virtual reality, the possibilities are endless.

Throughout this event, you'll have the opportunity to dive into problem-solving, coding, and design to bring your ideas to life and create a compelling project that showcases your skills and ingenuity.

Get ready to create!
