We brought together 80 smart minds, working on challenges within only 30 hours!

Developers, engineers, students—teams or individual participants were invited to participate and make, create and have fun with us.

A MAKEATHON is a very innovative happening: the name is a merge of the words ´make´ and ´marathon´.
