After the success of last year's hackathon, we were not surprised to hear the number of requests for a sequel .

With Belfast being announced as a designated Smart City, we thought it would be the perfect way for the community to contribute to the pipeline of projects that are being put in place, through creating a hub of open innovation for producing real-world solutions to tackle some of the problems Northern Ireland faces.

We want women coders and the student developer community to come together to hack solutions that support sustainability, safety, mobility and efficiency for smarter cities.

We knew that we wanted to go bigger and better, but we also wanted to make sure that we would make a real-world impact by actualising some of the ideas that would come out of this hack. So this year we have set the Challenge of:


1st Prize:


2nd Prize:


3rd Prize:


Spot prizes include:
Apple Watches, Drones, Bose Headphones, Go Pros etc

Last year we had an insane amount of prizes, and this year it's going to bigger! For those that attended, you know how we love to give prizes away. The cash prizes will be the same, but we will be increasing the budget for spot prizes. Oh, don't worry if you are one of those "I never win anything" people, we will have T-shirts and swag bags for all attendees
