Turn your idea into a product demo. Join the hackathon with hundreds of developers. Get your hands on +50 000€ in prizes. This bootcamp is aimed to help you get a fast-start to Slush Hacks, so you can be better prepared, learn the tech and get feedback on your ideas.

As consumer we use games, apps and various services daily that offer us personalized experiences, many of which have a gamification aspect. Yet, we don't always get the same experience with the public services we use daily. It's time to change that. The city of Turku, and cities across the world, are opening up data and working with developers to create better services for their communities. Join us for another session of #DevShark, this time working with the city and Slush Hacks to challenge and reward the best cases. During the day you'll hear from various experts, from technical providers, the city and various open data experts.

The training is free for all. All attendees should bring their own development machine, equipped with their preferred development environments and the appropriate Azure SDK downloadable from http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/

This technical training will focus on the Ultrahack Civic Tech -challenge, part of Slush Hacks with a 20 000€ main prize and the Azure Cloud Challenge, through which you can win additional 10 000€.
