About

DragonHack, the first Slovenian student hackathon, is an annual event which will take place on the 20th and 21st of May at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science in Ljubljana. The idea is to connect brilliant and innovative people with great ideas to create awesome software and hardware solutions. It stimulates critical thinking, and involves creating innovative solutions to practical problems.


A student hackathon is a competition where students, with the help of professors and mentors, collaborate and compete in creating and implementing innovative software and hardware ideas, with the goal of learning and having fun.


DragonHack will be held at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science in Ljubljana, Slovenia.


The Faculty of Computer and Information Science is the leading teaching and research institution in the field of computer science in Slovenia, and despite its comparatively short history, it has a number of active research groups as well as a lengthy roster of alumni, some of whom have achieved distinction in various fields of computer science in Slovenia and abroad.
