Marathon of hacking
A "hackathon" or marathon of hacking is an intensive, continuous two-day competition of innovative and creative individuals, who are divided into groups that solve different challenges assigned in advance. Challenges can be purely development, business or a mixture of both – a development and business challenge.
What is the UniCredit Hackathon CEE?
A mixture of both – a developers and business challenge. Teams will be put together with hackers of different backgrounds, including some developers, UX designers and business ideators. The competitors have to keep at all times in mind that the result should be technically complete, marketable and attractive-looking. Yes, this is more than just a hackathon! It's beyond an ordinary hackathon. It is UniCredit Hackathon CEE.
