What is Hack Cyprus
Hack Cyprus aspires to start a much-lacking innovation wave in Cyprus by bringing programmers, designers and technologists together. It is mainly represented by a Facebook group with ~400 members which ignites interesting discussions around technology on a daily basis and serves as a mechanism for people to find talent or projects to work on.
Hackathons are a central part of the culture embodied in Hack Cyprus. We believe that such events are ideal for creating environments where ideation and creation can thrive. Our first hackathon, and indeed the first ever in Cyprus, took place in September 2012 at the Cyprus University of Technology. The event amassed more than 70 participants with more than 10 teams presenting their projects in the end. Given the current situation with technology in Cyprus, we consider this to be a big win.
