Challenge outline


If you are ready for Riga Hackathon 2017 then expect to experience 2 weeks in an exiting surrounding far away from your daily routine. We provide you with concrete tasks regarding the areas of android programming, smartwatches, fitness tracking and drones from companies that are looking forward to learn about your ideas and see your prototypes. You will dive into the adventure hackathon together in groups with highly motivated design and development students. You will work under time pressure using the latest technologies to build an executable prototype for the topic of your choosing.

The final step is to convince the jury and partners to outshine the other groups.

You can win attractive prizes and earnings with a total value of 8.500€ for each project and impress the sponsoring companies and non-profit organizations.
