Hackathon is an unorthodox way to solve different kind problems. It is a competition that gathers programmers with different skill sets to work collaboratively, on a software project, which creatively solves various problems on a given topic. Who’s behind the Global Travel Hackathon? The idea was born at Kiwi.com, however, each of the hackathons has a different organiser. Please, consult the web page to see who’s the main organiser of the hackathon you are interested in. What should I build?The general theme of the Global Travel Hackathon is sustainability, accessibility and community in the world of travel.  In order to participate, do I need to stay for the whole 24 hours?We don't force anyone but we higly recommend that to enjoy the time to the top. Is there a hashtag? Yes, it’s #HackTravel. Can I get support to travel to a hackathon? We do not provide travel support to attend a hackathon of your choice. You are free to organize a hackathon in your city by yourself – if you would like to, let us know here. How big can my team be?From two to four people. Can I get a head start on my hack?To ensure a level playing field for all participants, all code and assets must be created during the hackathon. Failure to comply with this rule may result in the offending team's disqualification. Nevertheless, feel free to make plans, create wireframes, and brainstorm ahead of the event. Can I use external APIs, services, and SDKs?You are encouraged to use any 3rd party services, APIs, open-source projects, libraries, and frameworks as long as they are publicly available on the web.
