Prepare for more hacking in 2019!

It is over and it was a blast. 24h of hacking, struggling with failure and solving of problems. It all started with a chilled team building process. Little by little some strong and smart projects began to grow. Fueled up by some great foodtruck catering, the team started with the productive nightshift. Sadly not all teams survived the intense nightcrawl but the remaining teams proceeded with their teamwork at day two of our Big Data Hackathon. They recharged their batteries with a healthy breakfast and the final spurt began. After the teamwork process, the projects were evaluated by our judges Prof Dr. Christian Flath (University of Würzburg), Timo Appelmann (CPO @scoutbee) and our CEO Gregor. At exactly 3 pm, the winning team had been decided. Team Alabama Alligators and their project InstaX won the scoutbee Nightcrawl and thus 1100,01€.

There is nothing more for us to say except “cheers” to all and ...

… see you next year!

See you next year!

Data - is not just a buzzword, it is the opportunity to create and develop the future. The sourcing of Data and the work with it helps to initiate something huge within a short period of time. That’s why we set up an event to unfold this field and crawl through the night.

Within a 24 hours challenge you will develop solutions regarding sourcing, crawling, and build new ideas in the connection of big data. A team of data specialists will aid and guide you while you are working on valuable open source projects. We are expecting an inspiring night with local talents from every discipline, working on powerful and impressive projects.

This thrilling event is framed by interesting networking and a hands-on atmosphere. We also cater for your physical well-being to provide the best conditions for a fruitful and inspiring Hackathon.
