FAQ

WHAT IS A HACKATHON?
We think of our hackathon as an “invention marathons” where participants have no restraints. Unlike other events, we don’t want you to come up with a startup MVP or a solution to a corporate problem. It’s whatever you want to build, just for the sake of building. You start the weekend with one innovative idea, and over 36 hours, develop a product prototype that brings the idea into fruition. Unleash your creativity and technical skills!
WHY SHOULD I COME?
- For a weekend of innovation and fun with 150 smartest technologists
- Interaction with the top European and American companies
- Workshops and talks by experienced professionals
- Free food and swag
- Prize money
- Sauna 😛
Who can come?
HackPRAGUE applications are open to all developers and designers, including students and full-time employees. We will select participants based on their past projects, experience, and enthusiasm. We will aim to admit a diverse pool of people.
What's the theme of HackPRAGUE?
We don't want to limit your creativity. You are free to work on whatever you wish. One condition: it has to be awesome!
How do you select winners?
Impressiveness - Does it “wow” everyone?
Technical Difficulty - Was it hard to make?
Creativity - Is it novel?

What's the venue?
K10 Coworking, Koperníkova 2204/10, Prague.
It's a mini-castle with sauna and jacuzzi inside. Definitely the coolest venue in Prague.
What is the event schedule?
HackPRAGUE will start around 10am on Saturday, June 17, and end around 8pm on Sunday, June 18. We'll be releasing more details about the schedule in the coming weeks.
Can I work in a team?
Yes, you can work in a team of up to 4 people. If you come alone, you can participate in our team formation event at the beginning of the hackathon, where you can meet others with similar interests and complementary skillsets.
What should I bring?
Remember to bring your electronics, like your laptop, phone, and chargers. It would also be good to bring your toiletries, and anything that will help you get comfy, like a pillow, blanket, or sleeping bag.
Can I sleep at HackPRAGUE?
Absolutely! The real question is whether you will want to sleep. 😛
Will this cost me money?
Not only is the hackathon 100% free to attend, but we'll also provide you with free food, snacks, and swag.
