What is Trustbit Logistics Hackathon 2022?

Trustbit Logistics Hackathon 2022 is a yearly technology event, one day of non-stop technical talks, competitions, coding, learning and sharing with extraordinary people from all over the world. For 8 hours straight, around 100 participants (max. 50 people on-site) exchange ideas, share and expand their knowledge and enjoy our coding competition as well as the amazing Austrian food.

Who can attend?

Trustbit Logistics Hackathon 2022 is targeted at creative minds with a hacker spirit (in the classical definition of the word). Anyone with a technical profile is welcome to apply, not only engineers (e.g., web designers are welcome, too).

Do I need to be a Data Scientist or Machine Learning expert to take part in the competition?

No, with a bit of coding know how, you will still be able to achieve great results. To make it easy to enter the competition, we will publish Python and Java templates of the truck agent scripts, which participants can then take as a basis for their teams submission.

If you do not want to take part in the competition you can still attend the event and watch our live streamed brownbag sessions or chat with other people. See the full schedule of what we have planned here.

Do any Covid regulations apply for the on-site event?

We want to make this event as safe as possible for all on-site participants and therefore we ask you to bring a valid PCR or antigen test certificate. If that is not possible for you, we ask you to do a free Covid antigen test with our test team at the entrance. Thanks for your cooperation 🤗


How much does it cost?

Our Hackathon is free for all participants, but we do not pay for the on-site attendees´ transportation and/or accommodation costs. 

I registered but can't attend the event, what do I do?

Please let us know. On-site spots are limited and it would be nice if another candidate could go instead (but no, you cannot choose who that candidate might be).

Will there be a live stream from the event?

Yes, live streaming will be available. The feed will be focused on the activities taking place on the main stage, such as the opening keynote and the announcement of winners at the end of the day. In between we will stream technical brownbag sessions and panel discussions with experts in the logistics sector.

Will the live streamed sessions be recorded?

Yes, every session will be recorded and we will make them available online on YouTube and other social media in the weeks following the event.

Will we take photos at the on-site event and if yes, where will they be published?

Yes, there will be a photographer at the on-site event, who will document the day for us. Some of those photos will be published on social media like LinkedIn and Twitter.

Are there prizes for winning in one of the categories of the competition?

Yes, participants of the competition track will be able to win prizes in the form of coupons. As we do not want to openly support specific online retailers, the winners will be able to pick from a list provided by us. For more information about the prizes, please check out our prizes page.

How can my team get support from the hackathon support team during the competition?

When you created a project for you / your team on Taikai, please provide a unique ID for your team and add the Slack handles of your team members on the project page. The project template explains that in more detail. That way we know how to reach you on Slack. For general questions please use channel #support-competition and we will make sure to answer them as fast as possible. You can also create a private channel `#support_[unique_team_id]` and add your team members and our support staff with the Slack handle `@support-staff` there, if you want to submit confidential information. Additional instructions on how to take part in the competition and about all the rules, will be published on the Hackathon day May 13 around 9:30 CEST.

Still have questions?

Just join the Hackathon Slack workspace and post your questions there. We will happily answer all of them.
