What is it all about?

On the weekend of April 3–5, we are bringing the Hack the Crisis movement to Slovakia. Inspired by our friends from Estonia & the community of Garage48, Hack the Crisis is a 48 hour virtual hackathon during which dozens of teams will work remotely on various challenges affecting our societies.

We invite all of you to join us – we need help from experts in all fields, entrepreneurs, government officials, developers, creative minds and everybody who wants to contribute to innovative solutions to counter the crisis.
