HACKING THE FUTURE OF BROADCAST @IBC HACKFEST
With over €5000 euro in cash prizes and a hugely influential jury of broadcast industry professionals to judge the hacks, The IBC Hackfest is a creative space where hackers come together for three days and two nights in the heart of the show floor of IBC with over 55000 attendees expected in 2015. Located in Hall 5, the IBC Hackfest will provide a forum to help create hacked solutions and inventions.
We will be empowering young talent with bright ideas to take on new and exciting challenges and brainstorm and build new ideas in an innovative environment.
The IBC Hackfest kicks off in Amsterdam on the Friday, September 11th running through to Sunday September 13th for a full weekend of hacking — where coders, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, hardware hackers, UX and UI specialists, data scientists and others come together and brainstorm over a couple of days and build out their ideas in a short term innovation event known as The IBC Hackfest.
We will feed you for three days and two nights. You are welcome to sleep at the venue if you want to work all night but you must bring your own bedding and roll to sleep on the floor. The best work often happens at 3am we find, so feel free to hack all night if you like! There will be two parties, one pre-event party with drinks on Friday night and a post event party on Sunday night as well. It will be loads of fun and we offer networking with top industry players!
