TechFest connected by Vodafone, the most complex technology festival, is inviting approximately 300 programmers to enlist here at MegaHack-Hackathon, a challenge launched by the event’s partners – Vodafone and BCR.
MegaHack is a 24 hours programming marathon where participants will show their skills in solving business challenges by developing tech solutions for various companies. The assignments will be communicated to the participants before the contest starts, so each one can opt for what he/she feels fits best his/her own skills.
Signing up is free of charge and can be done individually here. Minimum age requirement: 18 y.o. Projects will be uploaded here on devpost platform. Contestants will bring their own workstation (laptops, chargers, peripherals etc.). During the competition the teams will have constant support from skilled mentors. The competition’s jury consists of Vodafone and BCR representatives and other local experts. Find out more about assignments, rules and regulation here.
„TechFest is a giant meet-up for the IT community, but MegaHack and Venture Lab, with two complementary formats, were specially designed to generate ad-hoc custom solutions or to surface existing solutions already developed by the start-up community. That is why we wanted to host both events so that in the end everybody will have benefic outcomes – both the corporations which face certain challenges, as well as the start-ups, respectively the developers”, said Vlad Șuteu, TechFest Program Director.
Digital Venture Lab, taking place on the first day of TechFest –September 20th – comprises a series of presentations held by start-ups for companies representatives in order to showcase how their solutions solve certain challenges for each of the respective businesses.
