Roma Hackathon

Posted on Posted in News

On the 31st of March and 1st of April the Italy Chapter of Techfugees will be hosting its third hackaton, this time in collaboration with Unicef and Facebook that have come together to engage a community of tech developers into building solutions for the refugee community. The brief of this hackaton is all about the overcoming of cultural barriers, the better flow of information to migrants but also about them to communities to foster integration initiatives. The developers will be able to code on the suite of Facebook APIs that include integrations with multiple facebook products such as social plugins or messenger chatbots.

The winners of the hackaton will receive from Facebook amazing prizes that include:
  • A trip to one of Facebook offices in Europe, so that the winners can spend some time on their product with facebook developers
  • Access to the FBStart program that offers a number of advantages for startups including credits for facebook ads.
The Rome Techfugees hackaton is supported by LUISS ENLABS, incubator of startups in Rome, Codemotion, the largest technical conference in Italy and Europe with a network of over 40,000 developers, and Deliveroo, Europe’s food delivery excellence.
