Hack for the future 2021

In 2021 the year the world became digital. We are all online – we work online, we meet online, we have fun online. But we won’t lose our human side from being online. Let’s Hack the future – let’s find a way to use technology to make us better humans. Let’s make technology serve the Humanity, not the other way around.

Would you take the challenge to code for a better future?

What is our
Hackathon concept?

The year of 2021 is a special one. With many of us in isolation and working from home we all need more than ever social interaction, collaboration, do something good and have fun of course. This is why Strypes Group created the Hack for the Future 2021. An online event on Zoom where we all gather for a long weekend, exchange ideas, create something innovative in teams to help humanity, make some new connections, see old friends and have fun while doing all that.

Strypes Group and all the other organisers will make sure that all basics like food, drinks and online zoom rooms are arranged for you, so all you need is your laptop and a good internet connection. We will also support you with some amazing mentors from various backgrounds, inspirational keynote speakers and some influential judges. On the Sunday of the event you will have 5 minutes to present what you’ve done and see if you can win some great prizes. Sounds like fun and you want to join, right?

About the Organisers

Strypes Group is the host of the 3rd Hack for the future. We started in 2015 with the vision to give an opportunity to talented software developers in Bulgaria to share their ideas and showcase their skills. We believe a strong IT community helps all of us – companies or individuals, becoming better in what we do. Sharing ideas creates event better ones. We think innovation (and thus creativity) is key to our field of work. One of the many important ingredients for innovation is diversity. A hackathon is one of the many ways to start a creative and innovative journey together with the community of developers. If you want to learn more about Strypes click here.
