Calling all hackers!

 

Contribute to Nextcloud and compete for a prize from the EC: join the NextGov Hackathon!  

Starting April 25th, Nextcloud and the European Commission’s Open Source Program Office will be hosting a week long Hackathon with the mission to help build and protect Europe’s digital sovereignty.

Help build and protect Europe’s digital sovereignty!

With exciting project topics built around enhancing the Nextcloud platform, you can use your coding skills, expertise, and creativity to improve Nextcloud Deck, Talk, Calendar, Photos and other apps.

   

Plus, if none of the proposed topics are your cup of tea, you are welcome to come up with your own idea and wow us all.

With your contributions, Nextcloud helps public administrations across Europe to reach digital sovereignty in their digitalization journey. That’s countless universities, governments, and major cities like Geneva and Paris, that will benefit from your talent and motivation.

To provide an extra incentive, the EC is offering cash prizes of up to €5,000 for the coolest, best, most creative contributions during the week!

This is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the open-source community.

For registration and more information on contest details and important dates, check out the NextGov Hackathon page!

You can participate solo or as part of team.

We can’t wait to see you there!
