First Liechtenstein Hackathon takes place at the University of Liechtenstein

The Institute for Information Systems has hosted the first Liechtenstein Hackathon, organised by IT-Crowd-Club Liechtenstein.

The Institute for Information Systems has hosted the first Liechtenstein Hackathon, organised by IT-Crowd-Club Liechtenstein.

In the course of 51 hours, from Friday evening to Sunday evening, a mobile app for Liechtenstein was developed. The concept of the hackathon is an internationally established format for the creation of a software application in a defined time frame, with as many software developers and designers as possible being involved. The   Liechtenstein Hackathon 2014 developed an interactive app for tours through Liechtenstein (historic tours and guided excursions, circular walks with information, geocaching, interactive community rallies and also fictional stories like detective stories and murder mysteries).


Some of those taking part stayed at the university overnight, in order to make the best possible use of the time available.
 
The feedback of the participants in relation to the organisation and the idea generally was extremely positive. All in all, there were more than 25 developers taking part in the Hackathon. The app will be presented to the public  on the occasion of the
LIHGA trade fair.
