Calling hackers and developers from all over the world — join teams to hack a product within 24 hours.


Welcome to the Disrupt Europe 2013 Hackathon! Our Hackathons are crazy, exciting, exhausting events where hundreds of coders and developers come together to form teams which have just shy of 24 hours to build something amazing from the ground up.

Prizes

Overall Winner
$5,000

Eligibility

What should I build?

Something awesome. We’re not too worried about whether your Hackathon project has some potential business model built-in. While that can’t hurt, our judges will be focusing on creativity, cleverness, and that deep-down sense of “Whoaaaaaaa“.

What Should I not build?

Anything that breaks our rules, or goes against our events-wide anti-harassment policy. Also, you probably shouldn’t just make a fast clone of an existing concept and call it a day — those never get anywhere near the winner’s podium.

Requirements

All code must be written during the hackathon.
