Welcome student

Oh, you found us! Welcome to the challenge of challenges this spring – the digital hackathon brought to you by Campus Varberg and the Alexanderson Institute. To enter this competition you are a student that would like to show off some of your digital skills – in a pretty cramped format, 24 hours. But don’t worry, you won’t do this alone. We will divide you into awesome teams of 2–4 people AND you will also get the opportunity to receive some coaching during the competition.

The task

The rules are simple. After a half-day kick-off with your assigned company you and the team will get 24 hrs to come up with an awesome idea – and remember, it has to create real value for your company. What company? There will be several small and medium-sized enterprises from Halland.

Do I have to produce a finished product during the Hackathon? No, you have 24 hours at your disposal and your contribution can range anywhere from a powerpoint presenting wireframes/mockups to clickable prototypes/proof-of-concepts to fully functional applications.
