About this event

Open Ghana to a connected world with tools and services. As software engineers and problem solvers, we believe that every engineer possess amazing ideas and creativity. Hackathons are a longstanding tradition for solving problems in the Software industry where engineers stay up all night and weekend to create a working product from scratch (or a prototype for a future product).

Remember- done is better than perfect.
