Here you can find a few quotes of past participants to give you a better idea what our Hackdays are about:
Simon Michel, co-founder of the startup Prognolite: “We made data from our partner Jucker Farm available for the Hackdays because we were looking for ideas about what could be predicted and optimized on the basis of restaurant sales figures. In addition to an ingenious, functional prototype, we collected many new ideas and got to know great people.”
Charlotte Soland, nutritionist: “As a food expert, I took part in the Open Food Data Hackdays to learn more about programming and open data. I am surprised and impressed how much you can achieve and learn in such a short time“.
Andrew, Master student in Environmental Economics agrees: “I had a fantastic time at the hackathon. I met an incredible bunch of engineers and designers who were able to produce tangible products within a seemingly impossible timeframe. Every single team was working until the last seconds of the allotted time. Even after the presentations and product displays the hackers discussed amongst each other more projects we could work on. I can’t express my admiration for the team of organisers and their ethos, and everyone that took part! See you at the next event!”
