The goal of the competition is to help develop the Serbian game developing scene and certainly to help the Nordeus guys to scout talent for their rapidly growing business.
For the uninitiated, hackathons are events where you get a number of talented guys in one place, organize them into teams and give them a deadline (usually 24h or 48h) to solve a problem.
This is a great thing for the Serbian hacking/startup scene in general since hackathons are known to not only produce a bunch of interesting stuff but also inspire a lot of people and/or create nuclei of future startup teams.
The competition itself is taking place on December 24th* in Nordeus’s Belgrade offices, with teams competing for victory in best gameplay, most innovative, visual quality and overall winner categories. Prizes are comprised of a number of gadgets including iPad2 and HTC Sensation.
