HackZurich features as part of the Digital Festival. Founded in 2014, HackZurich has rapidly developed into one of the largest and most prestigious hackathons in Europe.
A total of 550 international participants are selected from over 4,800 applications from more than 60 countries, and over the course of 40 hours, they will work in teams to develop highly innovative prototypes for web, mobile and desktop applications.
The focus here is firmly on fun, exchanging knowledge, the unique atmosphere and opportunities for mutual learning and inspiration.
