#ORGANIZATIONAL

HackYeah is a kind of 24-hour long IT festival. It is going to be the biggest stationary hackathon in the world! A hackathon is an event, typically lasting 12 to 48 hours. At this time a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming - not hacking only, but basically CREATING THINGS. At HackYeah there will be a conference with meetups, lectures, workshops, and late-night talks.

24-25th November 2018 in Warsaw. We will announce the location soon.

Our project is directed to all individuals who have a feel to develop business and who want to create solutions for HEALTH, FINANCE & INVESTMENTS, and EDUCATION. Our attendees will work on better and simpler solutions for these categories. All the freaky geeks and creative people are welcomed.

The HackYeah is open for everyone. Are you a student? Join us! Are you an undergraduate? We’ll be glad to meet you. If you are a specialist in your branch - you have to be here. We invite people at entry level, junior, mid, senior and also IT stars ;) If you would love to develop your ideas or products with other specialists - see you in Warsaw this autumn!

We are calling for fans of VR, AR, AI, IoT, Data Mining, Gamedev, Productdev, Mobile, Automotive and specialists in programming languages: Java, C/C++, C#, .Net, Scala, Swift, Objective C, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby, HTML5, SQL.

Non-tech people are also welcomed! All of the teams at the hackathon will need some person with a vision, soft skills, determined to implement ideas and who likes spending time with other tech visionaries. We also invite to take part in the conference to join lectures, share knowledge during workshops and to gain experience in new fields, connecting new people.

We will start on Saturday at noon and will code and create till Sunday noon. We start with the registration on the spot - please have your ticket printed or on mobile device. The next step is an opening ceremony when all of the participants receive information about challenges and organization of the event. Then you have time to create your team and take on a task chosen from the inspiring marketplace of ideas presented by our hosts, or you just start working on your own idea.

ATTENTION! You can change your team members during 24 hours, or you yourself can join different teams. Who is approved to be your team member and fight for a reward with you? It’s up to you and your team! :)

Choose a task to complete. You can take only one or more. You can also change tasks during the hackathon. The basic assumption of HackYeah is to find the best solution that is connected to HEALTH, FINANCE & INVESTMENTS, and EDUCATION. May it be an app, VR app, hardware solution, results tracker for joggers, a new security tool for parachuters - you name it! The sky is the limit!

Our partners also have a lot of challenges for you. You can also choose any partner’s track and try to find the best solutions in this area. Go to their stands and asks about their tasks, rewards, and advice!

Mentors and judges will evaluate your solution that you will present at the great scene at HackYeah! After that… the prizes will be awarded for the best projects.

HEALTH, FINANCE & INVESTMENTS, and EDUCATION. Healthcare, nutrition, medical application, banking, cryptocurrencies, irregularities and fraud, education platform, learning app, artificial intelligence and many, many more. Still, have no clue?

Google these phrases - visit websites, read articles, see images and let them inspire you!

I’m not good at HEALTH, FINANCE & INVESTMENTS, and EDUCATION.
It’s OK. Our mentors will share some ideas with you. They will help you and give some inspirations. They will give you some tips in social media before HackYeah. Make sure to follow them. We will host some special guests who feel good in these areas - just ask them what kind of solution would be useful for them.

Or maybe…

You know some guy or lady who is connected with HEALTH, FINANCE & INVESTMENTS, and EDUCATION? Invite him or her to your team and work together! Hackathon is not only for IT people - this is an event for open-minded people.

HackYeah costs only a symbolic fee and all the profit will be donated to Szkoła 3.0 - a charity organization supporting IT courses for kids at Children's Homes in Krakow. You will spend a crazy time in one of the most modern areas in Europe! We will feed you, tend&protect you, teach you and entertain you - a crazy weekend in Warsaw is worth it! :)

HEALTH, FINANCE & INVESTMENTS, and EDUCATION. To pick hot topics we’ve organized the Antihackathon. We’ve discussed choices from a survey with tech-savvy minds and we’ve chosen the official HackYeah categories! There will be some tasks to choose from, too. Our partners are asked to create their own tasks and rewards. Look for them on our website and social media before the event, and at partners’ stands on the spot!

Each of the tasks will have a separate rules in which you can find more details regarding evaluation. However, we’re always looking for an interesting approach to the topic and the probability of bringing your idea into life.

We do not care about technology or programming language you will use to make your project alive. We care about the final result! !:) Long story short: the main tracks are open :)

Buuut it’s not the end… Our partners will prepare some special tasks based on their current needs - it’s a superb opportunity for you and a huge step in your career. Take some time to approach our partners’ stands - their tasks may interest you even more than the main theme.

Of course, it’s a hackathon!
