Ihminen+ Hack is a hackathon accompanying the Ihminen+ seminar. The events are independent, so you can sign up to the hackathon without attending the seminar. Prizes will be given out in 3 categories: Human Upgrade, Future Vision and People’s Choice. The winning team of each category will receive awesome prizes and tickets to the main seminar event. Teams are limited to 4 members.
What is a hackathon?
Hackathon is an event where people get together to solve problems, explore new technology, make awesome things, have fun, learn from each other and perhaps develop something useful while doing so. Hackathons are built around technology.
Sure, taking part in a hackathon exposes you to technology and coding. But not everyone needs to be a programmer. Hackathon needs all kinds of skills from graphics design and storytelling to health and medical expertise and out-of-the-box thinking. If you enjoy challenging yourself and social learning, a hackathon is an event for you.
The objective in each hackathon is to build a demo or a prototype - often software. It can be done for fun, for the challenge or for the prize. It can be something useful or entertaining or perhaps done simply because you could do so.
To this end, prepare to hang around with people with different backgrounds and skills. The best teams are those with programmers, designers, subject experts and even a mad scientist. And definitely, the best team is with you.
