About The Event

It is the largest hackathon in Europe, bringing together more than 2,700 people from the IT industry.

 

What is HackYeah all about?

First and foremost, it's a hackathon - an event that brings together creative people to hack reality and fix global problems with the tools of their choice.

 

HackYeah lasts 24 hours, and during this time participants must create a solution that will give them a chance to win a prize in the chosen category. Who can participate in hackyeah? Literally everyone! You can be a programmer, UX developer, game developer, infosec wizard, graphic designer, webmaster, engineer, product manager or an extremely creative person! Each participant can work independently or in a team of up to 6 people!

 

There are several tasks to choose from:

- three main categories, which respond to current problems we face in the world, selected after detailed consultations with NGOs from Poland. These categories are open-ended, so we don't dictate the direction in which projects should be developed!

- partners' tasks - These are tasks prepared by entities supporting us in the creation of this hackathon. More specific, they focus on a particular solution. As part of this task, you may be called upon to develop an app, an idea to improve customers' cybersecurity, hack a power generator or find a solution to problems in Poland's health care system. These are just a few examples of what your challenges might be during HackYeah.

 

Each task comes with a unique reward! And you and your team can participate in as many tasks as you want. We provide full board during the hackathon and a separate sleeping area for anyone who may need to rest a bit.

 

HackYeah is not just a hackathon - it is a unique IT festival.

In addition to hacking, you can:

  • Attend a conference where speakers cover a variety of topics from different IT and community industries.
  • Relax in the interactive partner zone (fancy a massage? How about playing a VR game? Experiencing 8 dimensions in a simulator? Or climbing a moving wall? You've got it!)
  • Meet unique and creative people. Make new friends or business partners!
  • Are you looking for a job? It's an ideal place to find great employees (among more than 2,700 participants) or employers (among dozens of companies - event partners).
This is a unique initiative that combines the formula of a hackathon and an IT festival. Workshops, lectures, meetings - all this turned 24 hours of hard work into great fun!
