Description

Welcome!

The first Western Digital Hackathon, in collaboration with MongoDB, will be held in the beautiful Ghelamco Arena, Ghent from Friday the 9th until Sunday the 11th, March 2018.

How many times have you encountered a problem with society? Have you ever wondered why there isn't a solution? Maybe you have an amazing idea and would like to see it turn into a project with like-minded persons.

Come and join the WD Hackathon 2018. You’ll meet passionate people with different backgrounds and skills. Let’s put an end to these social and structural problems with society!

You don’t need to have a technical background or be an expert. Everyone who wants to make a change is welcome. Just bring your laptop, skills and lots of enthusiasm! The only requirement is the use of open data.

You can team up with your friends in advance or come with a collaborative team-focused mindset and scout for team members at the event. Teams will be limited to 5 members.

We will provide the space, food, drinks and internet to keep you going!
