Hackathon droidcon Italy


“We bring people together to learn new things”

9-10 April 2016

Talent Garden Torino

The droidcon Italy HACKATHON is the hackathon organized just after the main droidcon conference.
The hackathon is about Android development in general, with particular focus on new the nds such as wearable, IoT, material design and more.
The first day, participant will receive the “theme(s)” to be followed to create an Android app, and have the chance to win.
Sponsors will offer prizes to the best teams, plus special prizes to be defined.
We bring people together to make new friends, learn new things, and bring new ideas to life.

What is in general

The hackathon is a contest where various groups of developers/hackers will compete to make the best hack or (in our case) create the best app, for example, using the API provided by the sponsors, or by using Android hardware or smartphone, or achieving a goal proposed by the sponsors, perhaps pursuing social or didactic activities. At the end of the hackathon, participants illustrate the results obtained and a jury evaluate the work rewarding the most deserving ones. The members of the jury are the organizing companies and the sponsors that promote the event. (for more details see the Rules)


The droidcon hackathon is your chance of putting into practice what you have learned at the conference, and maybe form some lasting partnerships by bringing your ideas to life! You’ll be joining forces with other passionate Android developers to create something unique – or even win a prize provided by our hackathon partners. This hack will attract some of the most talented coders and creative experts!
