Hacker Games Pro: Aviation

Join the forces of the best hackers in Lithuania

Get ready for the Hacker Games Pro: Aviation

April 28 - April 30, Vilnius Tech Park

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ― Lao Tzu

How to enhance traveling experience? How to make traveling by plane easier, safe and more comfortable? How aviation companies can use flight data to become more effective? We will seek for the answers to these and more questions during Hacker Games Pro: Aviation.

Hacker Games Pro: Aviation is a 48-hour hackathon, which is dedicated to inspiring creative minds and building technology solutions for the sector of aviation. The winning team will have an opportunity to develop their business idea further with mentors and reach for initial investment.

So, on 28-30 April, join HACKER GAMES PRO: AVIATION, powered by Small Planet Airlines and App in the Air.

We are looking for people who are motivated to solve real problems, with particular interest in the track industry, people who are capable to develop fine products, people who are passionate about innovation and ready to escape from their daily routines.

Every H A C K E R  G A M E S  P R O  has one track. It has corporate leads – leading companies in the industry – related to the track, that not only dedicate their mentors and share they know how. They also delegate their teams to compete with you and their colleagues to join your teams if you take them in.

Your goal is to create a working prototype from scratch, pitch it to the jury and win the ultimate prize.
