Do you know about hackatons? What they are and why people like them?
Hackathons are all about taking something you love, combining it with tech and learning something in the process.
The Hack Tour is coming to Tartu on September 5 and the event is completely free of cost!
The Hack Tour is a series of events hosted together by Slush, Junction, Startup Sauna and a local co-host. The idea is to gather emerging tech talent, tech enthusiasts and startups for a day of hacking, learning, and networking. The Hack Tour events include startup coaching by Startup Sauna and a coding workshop with Junction. They will end the day with a networking party combined with some relevant information on how to get the most out of conferences, and possibly you can win tickets to both Slush and Junction.
The Hack Tour it’s an event divided into 3 sessions:
1. Startup Sauna pitching/coaching event for startups
2. Junction workshop for developers
3. Community gathering in the evening.
