Here are a few things to bring with you for the smooth running of the event.

  • Your ID : there will be a check-in at the entrance for security reasons
  • Your laptop: we will provide Wi-Fi, but no computers. Make sure to bring your charger as well: it will stay on for 36 straight hours!
  • Headphones/earplugs: brainstorming with so many people can be noisy, make sure to have headphones available if you want a quiet time.
  • Artistic material: if you need specific material to create your design (tablet, paint, etc.), bring it with you.

Hackathon is a trendy creative and collaborative process which gathers happy volunteers to address a practical issue using computer and data science on a limited period.

Anybody interested and feeling up to the challenge, including (but not limited to) designers, data scientists, artists, developers, startupers, students, you.

We suggest that you create teams with both sets of skills to get the best results. We can also match you with available participants who have registered alone and who have matching skills. For data, coaches will be available on site. Bear in mind that we will take your specificity into account when distributing the prizes.

A great experience, cash prizes, your work presented in the offices of Allianz, and fun!

Interested in participating, but your friends or colleagues are not? You can register alone and we will match you with other participants with complementary profiles.

A team can be formed of 2 to 5 members. If your team is small (2 members for instance), we might propose to add standalone participants to your team. 

It costs nothing. The event is free, and we will provide food and drinks during the entire event.

Yes! We will provide food and drinks during the entire event so that you will need to worry about nothing except the challenge.

You are welcome to stay in the offices provided you bring a mattress/cushion/sleeping bag. Staying in the office is not mandatory, you can go home or to a hotel should you wish to at night.

We will prepare mandatory data sets, but you are welcome to bring additional sets provided it is consistent with ours and you have the right to use them.

A design, a graph, a 3D impression, a painting … anything you can think of that will represent data in a clear/beautiful/artistic way. 

The jury will judge on a mix of criteria, taking into account data relevance, clarity, design and artistic quality of design.

Allianz gets to keep your outcome, but you are free to use it again for other purposes or events.
