Questions and answers

What exactly is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event in which software developers, designers and entrepreneurs come together and work on an idea for a few days. The event will be sponsored by companies, that means we have exciting prizes and planned key notes for you! There is also a career fair waiting for you to be checked out and of course free food and drinks.

Do I have to be a programmer to attend?

NO! We're looking for a diverse group of people who want to work on an idea for a few days. You're a designer? Help create the user interface. You're a business rockstar? Help create a business or customer plan. You want to try coding for the first time? We will have introduction workshops that will give you a first glance about coding.

How many people will the hackathon have?

We're planning with 120 attendees, 90% students and 10% professionals! Just apply here!

What about hardware?

We’ll have a hardware lounge with plenty of boards, tools, and gadgets for you to check out!

What can I build?

Anything your heart desires! Hardware, web, mobile, gaming; you name it, we’ll support it.


Only projects started at the hackathon will be eligible for prizes.

How do I find a team?

A team has to be smaller than 5 people. On the first day, we will have a short pitch event. That means, you can come with an idea and tell everyone what you're looking for or you get inspired by other people. Maximum team size is 5 but of course you also can work in projects on smaller teams, there is no minimum size.

What should I bring to the event?

Your computer (laptop or desktop), any electronics want to use, chargers, toiletries and a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow if you're planning to stay over night and we hope you will! And of course, your student ID.

Overnight Stay?

Sure! We'll have a sleeping room available with 20 campbeds.

Will there be travel reimbursements available?

Yes! If you're coming from outside the Oberpfalz, it's possible to apply for reimbursement to cover some of your travel expenses. This also includes an overnight stay from Saturday to Sunday if you can't reasonably get home after the event. Depending on where you come from, the reimbursement can be up to:

  • Bavaria (outside of the Oberpfalz): 25€
  • Germany: 40€
  • Rest of Europe (SEPA area): 75€
Important note: We can only transfer money in the SEPA area! Thus, be ready to provide your travel receipts and bank address.
