It’s almost time.
In just over a week, we’re bringing the TechCrunch Disrupt conference to Europe for the very first time.
And you know what comes before every Disrupt? One of our crazy, intense, exhaustingly wonderful hackathons, where you’ve got just shy of 24 hours to build the very best thing you can hammer together from the ground up. To show the world you’re one of the best coders in all of Berlin. To blow minds.
We’re pretty much out of tickets. This will be one of the very last batches we release.
What Is It?
Never been to one of our hackathons? Here’s how it works: You enter. You check in. You find a team, or bring one with you (or, hell, hack alone!). We start the clock, you open your code editor, and you let loose every bit of skill you’ve got at your disposal.
At the end of 24 hours, you and your team have 60 seconds to wow the crowd —from your fellow hackers, to local VCs, to our panel of awesome judges (which we’ll announce early next week.)
The top team walks away with $5,000, no strings attached. The top three teams get to present their projects again just a few days later — but this time, it’s in front of the massive audience at the main Disrupt conference. And because we like to sneak as many clever people into our conferences as possible: the top 50 teams each get 2 tickets to the main Disrupt Europe event (generally valued at nearly $1,000 each)
Oh! And there’s a bunch of awesome API sponsor prizes up for grabs, as well —stay tuned for those next week.
Sound like something you’d be into? Great. Check out our newly polished set of rules, so you can start figuring out what you’re gonna build.
Then grab a ticket below. Quick. Because really — after this batch is gone, there aren’t many tickets left.
