Third edition of Combis try{code}catch hackathon has started – 24-hours’ student competition in programming for the first time within Combis Conference at which 15 teams will compete.

"After two years of try{code}catch hackathon event in Zagreb, we saw not only that young people have plenty of will and desire to design IT solutions, but also great innovative ideas that have thrilled us. This year we decided to organize hackathon within Combis Conference so that we could give an opportunity for conference participants to see how young people think and implement their ideas in practice. On the other hand, we also wanted to give students a unique opportunity to attend Combis conference and to acquire new IT knowledge and experience", said Mladen Maras, director of try{code}catch hackathon.

Teams that are competing in the next 24-hours are: Code Bandits, Dekoratori, Deterministic Minds, Exception, Fali četvrti, Imutables, Laganica, Math is the path, Oni s druge, Oš doš do šta,  Team Paradise, Plagijatori, Ritech, We see sharp i Wifi Cable.

"Each year we think what would best connect hackathon, actual ICT topics, vision and mission of Combis. So this year we decided that try{code}catch hackathon task will be social responsible theme – students will develop applications for blood donation. We hope that this theme, which aims to help the community, will further encourage contestants in solving the task. We don’t expect miracles in 24-hours, but expect great ideas, comfortable atmosphere and excellent fun as every year", Maras has announced.

There are two types of awards on Combis hackathon event. First is traditional award for first, second and third place. The best team will win the main prize of 5.000 kunas for each member. Second prize is 3.000 kunas for each member, and third is 2.000 kunas for each member. The other type of award is 'award on the long road' – Combis can choose a team that will engage within its NeoStartup programme and that will continue to develop their hackathon solution until its production.

Combis NeoStartup programme is business model that offers freedom in developing new ideas, but with business security, giving the owners of selected design solutions opportunity to develop projects based on the start-up principle, but with the backdrop of the established Combis experts, their knowledge and experience

Three best solutions at hackathon will have a chance to present their ideas to all Combis Conference participant on the closing session, when will also be an announcement of this year’s winner of hackathon.
