24hrs.This was the <CodingAustria> Hackathon.

The <CodingAustria> Hackathon is an initiative to digitize the Gemeinden in Austria. With their traditions and communities Austrians‘ small towns and villages have a lot of potential for new digital ideas and accessibility.

The goal of the <CodingAustria> Hackathon is to improve the platforms, tools and opportunities in small communities in Austria, and maybe even establish a role model to all of Europe.

The Challenges.Embrace the Gemeinde

Modern technology allows people to work from their home wherever they are. What other opportunities can technology bring to the countryside? At the Hackathon participants have an opportunity to take a step into the future of living outside the city by solving specific real- life challenges for real people:

  • Digitale Gemeinde – bringing people together
  • Breaking Boundaries – creating new digital opportunities
  • Sustainable life – saving resources for tomorrow
  • Mobility outside cities – finding new ways for transportation
  • Have fun – connect people for sports and cultural activities
