Hack4Split is back with a new look, a new feel and new partners on board

Unfortunately, the problems in Split don’t seem to be going anywhere – yes, Karepovac hasn’t stunk us out this year and Žnjan no longer has 15 different electro beats playing, however Marjan is under threat and entrepreneurs have been slapped with even more taxes.

Fear not! Hack4Split is back to solve the problems out there that we can. This time with a new look, a new feel and new partners on board. 

After the success of Hack4Split v1.0 which saw 54 participants create solutions for 14 projects, we took your feedback to give you more flexibility and creative control. The two day event will take place on the 16th + 17th March.

Over the last 6 months we’ve been working with a small group of non-profit organisations to make sure this fjatakon has plenty of impact whilst being easy-going, fun and generally fantastic.

There will be 10 dilemmas to solve altogether, and all you have to do is select which one(s) you want to work on. We’re looking for programmers, designers, content writers, mechanics, photographers and so many more to help create some good in Split. 

Last year’s winner, SplitBus, brought their own problem, as they created an app that brought you live bus times to your phone. If you have a problem you think you could solve, then you can bring that instead.

So start gathering your team, your ideas and get ready to Hack4Split.

If you’re wondering what the hell a hackathon or a fjakaton is, let me briefly explain. 

A hackathon is a multi-day event where a group of people work intensively to create something, be it an app, website, piece of hardware etc. A fjakaton is the Dalmatian style of this, more coffee breaks, the option to go home and sleep and the occasional breakout of klapa.
