Four-day HackTrain hackathon: destination InnoTransFour-day HackTrain hackathon: destination InnoTrans

In four months’ time the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology, InnoTrans 2018, will be hosting the Hacktrain 4.0 hackathon on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. Hot on the heels of the initiative’s previous success at the end of 2016, the Hacktrain returns ­– a kind of technology marathon for hackers where endurance is required from the software developers, designers and industry experts who are doing the programming.

Between 18-21 September 2018, participants at the CityCube Berlin will focus on algorithms, bots and prototypes, with the aim of developing new ideas for networked mobile solutions.

The HackTrain Hackathon is a unique and immersive 4-day technology marathon where the most elite developers, designers, entrepreneurs are invited to come together from all over the world to disrupt the transport industry! Teams of innovators are formed on day 1 to build solutions to the major challenges of rail in the form of apps, websites and software within a few hours to pitch back to the industry!

Trade visitors at InnoTrans can take part in the presentation and contribute their expertise prior to the event, during the hackathon’s public opening times.
