Hack Yeah! – is it for me?  

As always, the hackathon is open for everyone: UX-ers, programmers, graphic designers, product managers, developers, and all other creative folks! The attendees will have a total of 40 hours to work on widely understood ecology, zero waste, health and finance-related topics. An additional incentive for participants is the chance to further develop their idea and implement it. Projects participating in the competition can be submitted individually or in teams. Communication between participants, organizers, mentors and jurors will take place on the Discord channel, which you can join today: Every attendee can count on the support from mentors, concerning the technological matters as well as the ways of implementing ideas for solutions to the particular tasks.

We organize Hack Yeah because we believe that formula of the hackathon can truly explore a huge potential of ideas that are hidden inside the IT community. From this place, I encourage everyone who has ideas and the strong will to create valuable ecological, health and finance-related tools to join Hack Yeah. The history has proved several times that this hackathon can really change the humans’ reality for better – and that is actually our goal! 

– Jakub Kozioł, CEO of PROIDEA Sp. z o.o.

I’m glad to see the Polish public sector once again inviting the programming community to work on key challenges our country is facing. Every hackathon is a time when the administration and the innovators inspire and encourage each other to work on solutions benefiting the whole population. HackYeah has shown on numerous occasions that during Europe’s largest hackathon this effect is multiplied.
