The price of the participants: Hi5! [We courageously attempted to reinvent the way humans do High Five. Never before has the experience been so refined, tactile, measure and delightful. Handily avalible on the AppleWatch.]
Welcome to Uppsala Hackathon 2016!
It's that time of year again when Uppsala's creative crowd sits down to make something cool in one day! Sign up alone or with some friends and think of an idea you want to try out during the hackathon on October 22nd.
As always, Uppsala Hackathon is admission free, and food will be served throughout the day (breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus snacks and coffee)!
This year, the theme is "disruptive tech". Create something embracing this theme during the day, and if you are lucky, you might charm the jury enough to be crowned the winner.
