HackAUBG 2018 Award Webit Tickets Winners

On 23-25 March 2018 we had a chance of mentoring the participants at the American University during HackAUBG. The main topic of the hackathon was Education. So students were focusing on solving issues related to education especially how to make the education better, more interesting and more interactive. The founder of Coding Girls - Anna Radulovski and the managing partner at Trio-group - Ivo Radulovski joined the hackathon as mentors. 

Facts & Figures:

  • HackAUBG is the second hackathon to take place on the campus of the AUBG.

  • 3 days

  • 10+ large IT companies

  • 13 Mentors

  • 5 Jury Members

  • 56 Participants

  • 14 Teams

  • Awards: 3000 BGN (1st Place), 2000BGN (2nd Place), 1000BGN (3rd Place), a brand new iPad 9,7, free pro tickets to Webit.Festival 2018 (the winning team).

  • Event hashtag: #HackAUBG

Highlights:

  • Although the majority of the participants were students at universities, it was a positive surprise to see quite many high-school students with big bright ideas and some practical technical know-how.

  • Many of the contestants didn’t come to the hackathon just to win, but also to make friends, for networking and to have fun while coding.

  • The winner of the hackathon was the team called “O(n!)” with their project “Studify” with a motto “All you need to improve your learning in one place” on how to make learning more interactive and interesting. The solution implemented an interactive exchange platform between students and professors to be able to annotate documents, exchange ideas for certain abstracts and share knowledge. This not only improves the communication and learning experience but also saves time.
