On October 17.-18., 2015 one of Europe's most diverse student-run hackathons "jacobsHack!" is going to take place at Jacobs University Bremen. Here, students will have 24 hours to hack on a project of their own choice together with fellow programmers from all over the world. The participants get the chance to win prizes up to 2000€ and can network with the event's sponsors. This year there will be respresentatives from companies such as Google, Microsoft, SAP, Major League Hacking (MLH), cliqz, careerloft and Rocket Internet. This year's edition of jacobsHack! is in addition officially opening the MLH fall season 2015.
"I Hack, Therefore I Am!". Under this slogan the foundation for jacobsHack! was laid when on Feb 1, 2014 the students of Jacobs University met to code for 19 hours on whatever project they considered interesting. On October 4th, 2014 we then took the next step and opened jacobsHack! for external students. In total 85 students from 30 nations participated at jacobsHack! Fall creating one of the most culturally diverse hackathons in Europe.
