What's your big idea for improving the way travelers search, shop and experience travel?
Is it simpliflying how to find information about cheap flights? Delivering a traveler's dream about an authentic and unique journey? Or presenting it all in a seamless mobile app?
THack Berlin on 2-4 December at Betahaus is your opportunity to build the ultimate travel app, learn about how the travel industry works and compete for cash prizes.
Tnooz, the global leader in news and analysis about the digital travel economy, invites you to join up to 100 developers, gain access to industry sponsors' technology and create amazing solutions for travelers.
The focus of the hackathon is airline and travel shopping and passenger experience. Airberlin, XapiX.io, and other travel industry and technology sponsors will provide APIs and other tools to enable teams of develpers to build prototypes of new products and services.
For example, Distribusion is the leading global distributor for intercity and airport transfer bus rides. Its API provides access to more than 100 bookable bus providers worldwide.
THack Berlin is an in-person competition among teams of up to five developers, designers and digital makers. All team members must register and work together at Betahaus over the weekend hackathon, then present their projects to a team of independent judges on Sunday afternoon.
Tnooz will offer two prizes: €1,500 to one winning team and €1,000 to the People's Choice team as selected by a vote of developers present. Airberlin and other API sponsors will offer prizes to be named later.
Developer teams will be required to select one or more "challenges" – travel issues or traveler problems – that will be announced at the start of the hackathon. Participants will design and code during the weekend, then demo to judges at the conclusion of the event.
airberlin, XapiX.io, Distribusion, and other technology sponsors will be on-site for mentoring and support. See the FAQs below for more details.
Join us for a creative, collaborative and competitive weekend to improve travel for all.
