Oktoberhackfest is the European Hackathon Championship. Since the beginning of the year developers have been building and battling in the hackathons from London to Tallinn and Stockholm to Istanbul. And now everyone is coming together in an epic finale in Munich during the Oktoberfest – the most popular event in the world. More than 200 hand-picked programmers with backgrounds in mobile, web, server, and hardware development will unleash their skills to create the future of tomorrow – in 30 hours.
As you probably figured out, this is a hackathon without a theme – apart from Beer & Code ^^. We thought to ourselves, what is better: 1 topic or 7 topics? So we are pleased to announce that IHK Oktoberhackfest will have several tracks:
Health & Fitness
What are the prizes?
We recommend that you have a team of 4 people as prizes are capped at 4 people per team.
Hackevents King of Bavaria (team chosen from 3 track winners): Flight to Silicon Valley for 4 people with Hackevents
Winner Mobile-Shopping: 4 Seats in the Allianz Arena Lounge at a FC Bayern Munich Bundesliga Match sponsored by Payback + VIP Table at Oktoberfest 29.09.2015
Winner Fin-Tech: 1000 EUR Amazon Voucher for the team + VIP Table at Oktoberfest 29.09.2015
Special prizes: Tickets to the Bits & Pretzels' Founders Festival in Munich sponsored by Hackevents and Bits & Pretzels.
When is the hackathon taking place?
We start hacking on Saturday, September 26, at 10 am. There's a special event already on Friday: registered participants are invited to join the get-together on Friday evening (6 pm) - you will get free drinks and will be able to socialize with other participants and find a team in case you haven't done so (which we strongly recommend) in advance.
Hackevents is hosting the Welcome Dahoam IHK Oktoberhackfest Get Together.

Who can apply?
Developers, engineers, and designers are more than welcome! You can come in teams or as an individual.
We recommend that you find your team in advance, however this is not a must. We will help you match with other people at the hackathon or at the socializing event on Friday evening. Please note: There is no limit of team members but the prices are restricted to 4 persons. We recommend that each team has at least 3 persons (e.g. front-end developer, back-end developer, designer).
Where do I register my project at the event?
We will announce the requirements for your team registration and project submission soon. One thing we require, all teams and participants must create a Github/Bitbucket repository of all the code they've written. We do not own your code. Everything you write/create yourself is your property.
What do I need to take with me?
The main thing to take is your computer and the charger. Take some clothes to change. We will provide free food and anything else you might need during the event. We will inform you about anything additional you need to bring closer to the event.
