Hackathon in the Port 2018 – technology, innovation and creativity by the Adriatic coast

This year, Hackathon organizers gathered a team of experienced mentors who will additionally guide competing teams through the process of optimizing and developing the solution to best meet the needs of the task. Participants are not required to be experts in VR technology, but rather to know the basics, enough to develop a demo with a clear commercial model behind it.
