The hackathon for the Basel region.
BaselHack is the hackathon for Basel, Northwestern Switzerland and bordering Alsace and Südbaden. The BaselHack hackathon has been held annually since 2017. Young and young-at-heart developers, technology fanatics, designers and other interested persons meet in every autumn and spend a weekend tinkering, developing and coding various ideas.
The goal of the hackathon is to get from an idea or a concrete problem to a first, functional prototype (software or hardware) in just a few hours. At the end of the hackathon weekend, the teams - which have often only formed at the beginning of the hackathon - present their prototypes. A technically experienced jury looks at the presentations and prototypes and scores the projects based on several criteria.
The annual BaselHack event is organized by BaselHack Verein, a non-profit association based in Basel. The association is open for anyone to join and is run through volounteerning. The costs related to organizing the event (mainly location rent, catering during the event, and prize money) is supported by sponsors. The budget for the event is between 15'000 to 25'000 CHF per year. The remaning costs for running the association are less than 1'000 CHF per year.
