The “Made in Luxembourg” hackathon will be organized on June 19th and 20th, 2020, at the Forum Geesseknäppchen in Luxembourg City. Developers and coders will compete in a 24-hour hackathon to solve challenges created by the event’s organizers. In 2019, the event attracted more than 140 coders.
Game of Code represents a unique opportunity to engage technical teams in a coding competition and provides a fun and challenging team building experience. As explained by Kamel Amroune, CEO of Farvest Group, “Game of Code is now well established in the Luxembourgish IT landscape and has become a must-attend event for all coders who want to showcase their skills while working with their peers”.
How do I register?
Teams (composed of 3 to 4 people) or individuals (students/job seekers) can register here to join the 24-hour hackathon.
Company/team registrations include access passes for all team members as well as three from the company wanting to give moral support to their team. Students and job seekers can register individually and will be matched (based on their skills, experience and competencies) with other individuals or teams before the event. As in previous editions, teams have the opportunity to invite their coaches to the competition. Note: Coaches are not authorized to code.
🚨 Following the recent development of the COVID-19 and the risk assessment by the Luxembourg Directorate of Health; the hackathon, scheduled on April 3-4, will be postponed to June 19-20 📆 Tickets already booked remain valid 👋 APPLY now > https://t.co/239xjxP1J5 #GoC pic.twitter.com/SAZcI7mQ04
