It’s official! we will be hosting the first ever public hackathon in Maldives on 4th – 5th April 2014 at Male’ city hall. We’re very excited! This is the very first event in the Kickstart series of tech events and we hope to make it an awesome one for all the participants.
For those of you who don’t know, what is a hackathon? Well, simply put it’s an event where like minded technology enthusiasts such as developers, designer, techies and geeks in general get together form teams, brainstorm, and work collaboratively to come up with innovative and creative products , websites, apps and sometimes even robots!. Participants gather at a location for a specified amount of time and work continuously, yes.. no sleep… but who needs sleep when you are having so much fun. We’ll provide the food and caffeine so that you can focus on the product 🙂
Just to be clear, hackathons are perfectly legal they are not events where evil hackers get together and break laws or are taught skills to break into systems and such. a hacker can be defined as someone who can make computers do what they want them to do, in a good way. This is the spirit of Hacking, using technology to create something that is useful, productive, creative, beneficial and of course, fun!
But thats not all, this is a great opportunity to meet the local tech community, make friends, brainstorm and geekout with an awesome crowd. So sign up! Seats are limited…
