#HackRemote Hackathon

This event has ended

online, Tuesday 31st March - Wednesday 1st April

Working remotely was once the realm of tech developers and stay at home moms. Now, whether through necessity or choice, more and more businesses are working to find remote working solutions. As the look of the office changes from large building to kitchen table new opportunities and problems arise.

What The Hack is teaming up with Thunkable to create #HackRemote an event to design tech based solutions for remote working problems. And in the spirit of walking the walk and talking the talk they are solving these problems all while working remotely.

In conjunction with the 8th goal of the EU’s 17 sustainability goals, What The Hack is tackling remote work accessibility in all of its forms. Whether it’s finding solutions for the differently abled, work life balance, parents, or new uses for remote working technology, What The Hack’s amazing participants will come up with the solution.

Just as What The Hack demonstrated the feasibility of a sustainable event with their FastFashion Hackathon, this remote event demonstrates the viability of remote working for organizations of all sizes.

As the shape of the office changes, What The Hack’s participants are poised to mould the future of remote working.
