CASSINI Hackathons: Space for the Financial World is a bi-yearly technology event, spanning over three days of non-stop technical talks, workshops, competitions, and coding. For 60 hours straight, around 1,000 participants can enjoy world-class presentations, demos, community events, and its classic 48-hour coding competition.

Yes! We will provide you with the relevant training and access to data that you will need to succeed - even without prior knowledge.
CASSINI Hackathons: Space for the Financial World curators aim at selecting the best, most participative and motivated, programmers and creatives. For this, they rely on what candidates fill in their profiles (their pitches and personal bios) and evidence of engagement in previous editions (if applicable). CVs don't matter, please don't paste full CVs as an application pitch. What matters is your potential and your passion for technology, no matter your level of experience.
Yes. The CASSINI Hackathons will have several hybrid locations, and you may apply to those. Just select a hackathon location that has the option of participating virtually.

Yes! Before the hackathon comes The Big Idea Campaign (17 - 20 October). This week-long series of events will set the scene and provides the opportunity for teams and participants to brainstorm ideas. It is not required to have a concept or idea in mind prior to application.
No. However, there may be discounts and other partnerships. If so, these will be announced in the months leading to the event, so make sure you follow us on one of the social networks where we're present.

A detailed schedule will be available closer to the event, on our website
Yes, live streaming will be available. The feed will be focused on the activities taking place on the main stage, such as talks and contests. When nothing is going on there, you can expect a general transmission of the event.
Unless the speaker states otherwise, every talk will be recorded and available online in the weeks following the event.
We have attendees coming from all over Europe. English is usually well understood and accepted. Our main motivation is technology and talent, and these are global attributes, so our main 'language' is what we use to code. English is not the only language at the event, though. The event is bilingual, so there may be talks held in the local language of the hackathon location.
