With only a few days left to register for our #HackYourCity! hackathon, you may be wondering: what is a hackathon ?
A hackathon is a #brainstorming marathon in which passionate dynamic people get together to solve #challenges in a short period of time. At the end of a hackathon, teams are to present their “hack”, be it a prototype or something else. Hackathons can cover every field, be it #programming and #digital #technology, but also #business, #tourism, #education and #culture. No need to be a hacker to take part in a hackathon! All you need is a will to meet new people, learn new things and a good team spirit to imagine, create & innovate!
Our #HackYourCity! hackathon is a #free event aimed at urban #creators, #engineers, #designers, #entrepreneurs, anyone interested in #education, #tourism and #innovation. #HackYourCity! is an opportunity to work together and find inventive and original ways to address one of the three following challenges, linked to tourism, business and education:
Challenge 1: Getting beyond the main iconic attractions: How to extend tourism further into Dublin 8?
Challenge 2: Creating links: How to engage the local community to see enterprise opportunities in Dublin 8?
Challenge 3: Digital literacy: How to encourage young users to become engaged active digital makers?
Afraid of not having all the information or enough knowledge in these areas?
Our partners, including Dublin City Councill and Fáilte Ireland, will share specific data to give the teams a comprehensive overview on the next generation of tourism, urban renewal challenges and information on #smartcities, #Dublin8 and the projects led in this area, in terms of culture, education, infrastructures and businesses among others.
