The leading online hackathon platform

Tired of hackathons that ask developers to do the impossible in less than 48h?

Designed in partnership with 42 and Epitech, our online hackathons take place on our online platform and run over several weeks. This means that organizers and participants can break free of the logistical constraints of traditional hackathons.

The benefit of online hackathons is that they produce more complete prototypes that can be quickly implemented within your company.
