Software is eating the world, as Marc Andreessen has famously proclaimed – and so the future belongs to hackers, entrepreneurs and hacker-entrepreneurs!
Hence at Metasite we are proud to be supporting and sponsoring the next Hacker Games, a great weekend event that will pool eager designers, software developers, hardware engineers, UX masters, aspiring marketers and business developers into a confined space for two days and challenge them to create new killer products!
The next Hacker Games will take place on 3-5 June, 2016 in Vilnius at VGTU Creativity and Innovation Centre (LinkMenų Fabrikas) and will be organized by Enterprise Lithuania and Startup Lithuania together with Vilnius Gediminas Technical University.
There will be three tracks – SOFTWARE, HARDWARE and GAME, each with its own set of mentors, tools and winners!
If you are itching to build a new carpooling app, design a new SaaS solution, build a supercool IoT gadget or through together the next addictive game – Hacker Games is the event for you. The only condition there is that you create something from scratch so you can compete for prizes!
