Live Long, #hackstrong

jacobsHack! 2018 is the 5th edition of the first continental European hackathon to be recognized by Major Hacking League. Since its founding, jacobsHack! has aimed to inspire its participants to build, to share, and to learn so that the end result of the hackathon results in a molding of the current status quo. Through teamwork and an amazing community, hackathon seeks to create social value, to seek growth, and to cause the right changes in the times and changing economic conditions.
