Get Free Tickets


The purpose of this hackathon, to take place from the 18th to the 20th of November, will be to build a web app for the community. While this will only be the first iteration (the app will be worked and further streamlined after the hackathon), the goal of the event isto deliver a website that will cater to the community’s basic needs; a place where members can communicate, cooperate,share ideas and organize meet ups amongst themselves. Another goal of the hackathon, outside of building a website that will work as an online portal for community members, is to also bring them together to work and learn from one another so as to foster relationships with people that have a similar passion for coding and software design (in line with the overall objectives of Agora).


  • Teams must comprise of five or less people.
  • Each team gets no more than 20 minutes for presentation of their work on the final day.
  • When voting occurs, each team must cast votes for another team; no self-voting allowed.
  • The website with the most votes (the “People’s choice”) will be used by the community in the next iteration of the website
