Programmer and designer students, apply to Hackathonovo!

Hackathonovo - students hackathon organised by IN2 software group will be held for the first time on 20 and 21 May 2017. Applications must be received by 7 May.

The theme of this year's edition will be the creation of socially useful application in cooperation with the Croatian Mountain-Rescue Service – Zagreb Station, and teams that can have between two and recommended four members can apply via the official website https://hackathonovo.in2.hr. Only full-time students can apply, ten teams will have the opportunity to participate, and the top three will win prizes in the total amount of 20,000 HRK.

The teams will spend that weekend in IN2, where they will be presented the problem, independently or with the help of a mentor develop an application in the technology of their choice and at the end present their applications to the jury in order to choose the best one. Food and beverages will be served for the participants during the weekend event and there will be a party at the end. Depending on the level of knowledge and the IN2 needs, employment in the company is possible.

"Hackathonovo will be an excellent opportunity to create interesting applications, to demonstrate students’ existing knowledge and acquire new knowledge, as our experienced mentors be available to all who require assistance during the development of applications. We would love to get a fresh and creative look at what applications can offer and we believe that students are the right people who can provide that. After the official part of the programme, for those interested in a career in IN2, we will gladly present a really wide range of software areas we cover, which includes a variety of attractive areas such as blockchain, drones and Internet of Things", said Andreja Smetko, Director of the Hackathon.
