Then this event is amazing opportunity for you. You’ll join a lot of other nerds/geeks/super hero’s/ designers/developers etc. to turn a certain “challenge” into an amazing prototype that you can pitch at the end of the hackathon.

The theme of the hackathon will be ” Unlock The Business Value of Digital Ship” which is based on a SetelHellas’ SmartBox-V ™ NID (Network Intelligence Device).
We will stay up all day designing, developing, learning and having some fun! We’ll supply the internet, software APIs, food, soft drinks and fun diversions. You bring your laptop, appetite, skills and ideas.

You can win several great prizes and meet a lot of new people! In short, just an amazing experience that you can be proud of!
