Calling all European developers! Itâ€™s time to show the tech world your crazy-mad skills at the TechCrunch Hackathon in Paris on May 25-26 at VivaTech. Itâ€™s one thing to create amazing new apps back in the comfort of your home or office; try doing it while competing against hundreds of top-notch hackers racing against a 24-hour clock. Do you have what it takes? Thereâ€™s only one way to find out; get your free tickets today.
An important reminder before you get too excited: this Hackathon is open only to residents from one of these European countries. And while itâ€™s absolutely free to compete in the Hackathon, we have only a limited number of tickets available, so donâ€™t wait. Once theyâ€™re gone, thatâ€™s it: no second chances.
The TechCrunch Hackathon is a sprint that feels like a marathon. Competitors form ad hoc teams and have just 24 hours to create, code and hack their way to a working product using BeMyApp, the official Hackathon platform. Then, after 24 sleep-deprived hours (and enough caffeine to kill a rhino), youâ€™ll have 60 seconds to present your creation to a panel of judges.
Youâ€™ll get tired, hungry and possibly even cranky but most of all, youâ€™ll have a blast doing what you do best: creating tech magic. Oh, and who cares about a little exhaustion when you could take home the â‚¬5,000 grand-prize, right?
Hackathon judges give each competing team a numerical score from 1 to 5. The top-scoring team nabs the cash, but every teamÂ that receives a score of three or higher gets five tickets to VivaTech 2019 plus two Innovator tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin in November.
Now, a TechCrunch event just wouldnâ€™t be a TechCrunch event without sweet swag, prizes and other goodies from our sponsors. And this Hackathon wonâ€™t disappoint in that area. Weâ€™ll have more details on the contests and prizes in the coming weeks.
The TechCrunch Hackathon at VivaTech takes place at the Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris on May 25-26. We canâ€™t wait to see what you can do, so register for your Hackathon ticket today.
