What would you do if you could access all the data our bodies are constantly producing? Heart Rate, Steps, Sleep, Weight, Movement, Physical motions - and this is just the beginning. Would you visualize it and support health workers? Would you write algorithms to detect diseases? Sky is the limit - and we can be your launching pad.
For 24 hours of hacking we will bring students from Berlin, Brandenburg and the rest of the world together in the HPI School of Design Thinking, located on our campus. By providing world class sponsors (including workshops and access to their data and APIs), a tremendous amount of widgets, a great location and plenty of coffein to fuel your brain we will create a space for creativity, inspiring ideas and a passion for trying out new things.
Interested? Come and share your dedication and skills with others, exchange knowledge and accomplish great things!

Keep in mind that we may have to adjust some of the times.
There are very few health tech hackathons striving to build useful applications with raw data, and we want to change that! For you it will be a chance to get in contact with our awesome sponsors and experiment with their data and gadgets.
Sure! As long as you are interested in health tech and 18 years or older we will be happy to welcome you! Any skill-level is welcome, hackathons should be a way to experience team-work and work on your own abilities.
Nope! HackHPI is a free event, with food and drinks provided by our sponsors.
You can hack with your peers or find a new team to work with. Teams should have a size of not more than 3-4.
Bring your laptop and charger, comfortable clothes and above all motivation to hack.

Last year there were a lot of people complaining that the ticket batches were gone to fast and so they couldn't join the hackathon even if they would have loved to do so. That's why we decided to change it this year: We're not releasing ticket batches but you can signup using the form below and we will send you a personalized invitation.
Another change due to a lot of people just signing up and not appearing last year we decided to have a ticket fee, that you will get back at the entrance of the event. The fee is 10€. This means that you "buy" the ticket for 10€ and at the entrance of the event we will give you the 10€ back. In cash. :)
