Dates for your calendar: BaselHack and its Pre-Events
Did you know the city of Basel has its own Hackathon?
But BaselHack is different and does not compare to any other hackathon out there. Standard ones usually have a theme with challenges of companies to be solved and commercially oriented sponsors who want to hire teams after the hack. This means that competition is on, which creates an atmosphere with pressure, not much different than in a work situation. People come with goals to get hired, the motivation to win the prize money or gain public fame.
Here is what is setup differently:
- Organized by a group of tech enthusiasts
- no payable software licenses – to allow projects to live longer than the hack
- Open Source – all code to be re-used by anyone
- Open for everyone show – access to pitches for a public audience
- Topic selected by the people present – a strong statement for the city and region
The BaselHack team believes that the BaselHack is much more than a Hackathon. The motto is to connect people, take fun seriously and grow open innovation.
To encourage and inspire your creative venes the BaselHack team organized two cool BaselHack Pre-Events to kickstart your ideas.
