Together with isolutions AG, the BSC Young Boys is organizing the YB Hackathon for the fourth time! Partner companies and BSC YB will present their own challenges, and topics such as IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Blockchain will be integrated within 24 hours around the Wankdorf Stadium.
At a hackathon, software developers, hackers, and business professionals meet to solve a predefined challenge. The goal is to develop a working software or hardware prototype that, later on, can eliminate real company's problems. Players take part in a competition where innovation and personal development are key paths to success. And to great prizes!
We are convinced that this initiative offers added value for all parties involved:
- We give developers the chance to show what they got and interact with potential clients
- We create a framework for Swiss companies to solve challenges outside given structures
- We give visibility to the solution competence
- We promote the innovative power of Switzerland as an IT and business location All essentials are on us
In an impressive scenery and sporty atmosphere, expect catering, drinks, a gaming corner, a chill-out lounge to relax, high-speed Internet access, and many more!
So if you are a passionate software developer or hacker, or you would like to present your company's challenge... We want you in! We can't wait to meet you on October 8-9 at the Valient Lounge in the Wankdorf Stadium (Bern).
