Helsinki Hackathon 2016

Challenge outline

Helsinki Hackathon 2016: Office 365 Developer is a unique hackathon event in Helsinki to kickstart the new year!


The hackathon is aimed for developers who want to learn and build around new ideas and possibilities Office 365 and the add-in model provides. You'll learn about the latest features, sample code, patterns & practices for creating Office add-ins. You'll also get to spend an evening with people who love hacking, coding and building solutions for Office 365! You don't want to miss this one.

The hackathon is about working in small teams, where you come up with an idea and start coding during the evening. At the end of the evening we'll showcase each team's solution. We'll give away spectacular prizes.

This event is free of charge, but spaces are very limited. The event is held in English.


I'm a developer, can I attend?

Yes, absolutely! You should be familiar with JavaScript and HTML, and it doesn't hurt to know a bit .NET as well.

I'm not a developer, is this event for me?

It depends. If you fancy watching developers hack away through the night, then yes - it's for you! But first and foremost this event is for developers who are familiar with Microsoft development tools. We'll have limited space for hangarounds.

I've never coded for Office 365

That is perfectly fine. We'll have a quick intro on the basics, and there's plenty of material available that you can study before the hackathon. A good list of reads will be sent to all attendees a few weeks before the hackathon.
