They know the problems people in need have, and we are going to try to solve those problems. We believe we can help – that the technology we use can change and save lives.”
The event will be connected with other cities and live-streamed through Spreecast 24h. There will be experts and mentors available to help with challenging problems. Thanks to API partners, there will be services and platforms available to use for free. Sponsors will provide food, drinks
