Three leading Dutch social housing associations and multiple teams of software developers have 24 hours to create and realize an idea that will solve three real-life challenges that housing associations face every day!  That is the Social Housing Hackathon in a nutshell. Participating teams will be collaborating intensively (with lots of coffee!) to hack their chosen case as creatively and efficiently as possible.

At the end of the Hackathon there will be an award ceremony at which the winning team will be crowned the winner of the Social Housing Hackathon 2017 and walk away with the prize money of €5000,- 

Please don’t hesitate to step by and take a look at how the participating teams are working, brainstorming and ‘hacking’ the future of social housing!
