HackZurich – 3 days of hacking in Zurich

This weekend 500 hackers transformed Zurich to the innovation hotspot thanks to HackZurich, the largest hackathon in Europe. A hackathon is a gathering where programmers collaboratively code in an extreme manner over a short period of time – a marathon for programmers. HackZurich started on Friday evening and ended on Sunday afternoon. A long nerd weekend with almost no sleep but a lot of inspiring projects and chats.
