HERE Hackathon

HERE Hackathon İzmir invites you to join in the spirit of hackathon by building that idea you’ve been thinking about and put together a working version to show the world.

On September 3-4, participants will trade their sleep to join like-minded people in a creative environment. You may work solo, come with a team or join one at the event to create an innovative software solution.

At the end of the event, teams demonstrate their projects to fellow hackers, visitors, and a panel of judges.

If you’d like to get a head-start on exploring what HERE has to offer developers, visit and access HERE data and services now.

If you’d like to join (or even just to show your support), sign up at this link.  

May the best teams win!

  • Second : Udacity nanodegree
  • Third : Hacknbreak sleeping cabin will be named after the winning team and free usage of this cabins

First-Timers & Non-techs  If you’re a first-timer or a concerned third party with non-tech skills, this is the perfect hackathon for you! As this is our first time doing this in İzmir, we are preparing everything from the scratch just to better answer your needs! If you’re coming without a team but looking to join one, we also host a team formation meetup at the start of the hacking period. Our mentors are also offering help as providing structure and project ideas, so you won’t get stuck in the initial idea phase if you’ve never hacked before!


We want you to focus on one or more of the following topics:

  • Smart mobility: Develop solutions to reduce congestion and empower faster, greener, and cheaper transportation options.
  • Smart cities: Create location-based solutions that have the potential to solve metropolitan challenges like energy, pollution, economic growth and sustainable infrastructure.
  • Gamification of map experience: Solutions focusing on making the maps more fun.
