techsylvania hackathonTransylvania is getting a new tech conference this year, for all the regional technology innovators and hobbyists who want to talk directly to some of the best professionals in the region, learn and connect with people who can make a difference.

The conference is taking place at Cluj-Napoca, Romania, the city that Huffington Post penned down as one of the cities that will shake up the world. Over 4,000 technology and computer science students graduate from Cluj universitiesevery year, so it stands to reason that Transylvania should become Techsylvania- at least from 31 May to 2 June.

Techsylvania is a complex event that starts on May 31 with a 24-hour hackathon on wearable and connected devices, focused on attracting the vast pool of talent available in the city. During the hackathon ‘s 24-hours , over 100 developers will have the opportunity to work on different types of mobile devices and use connected technology to develop their own applications and products.

The participants can come with their teams or they can join an existing one. The aim of the hackathon is to build a functional application during the event and convince the the jury of its potential. The best projects will be rewarded and the top three teams will get the chance to present their products to the entire audience of Techsylvania.

Gathering The Regional Tech Community

The hackathon will be followed by a one day conference on June 2, that will introduce the audience to some of the most prominent tech experts. The conference visitors will have an opportunity to listen to disruptive technology speakers, get inspired by successful entrepreneurs, have a drink with investors or other members of the tech community, as well as test different wearable and connected devices.

The lineup includes technological innovators and thinkers like Marcus Segal, HP Jin, Aryk Grosz and many more who will take the stage and motivate you to explore your own potential, as well as the potential of the technology we have at hand.

More details about the program and event invitations are available on the Techsylvania website, where you can also register for the conference.
