Leave town for a hackathon out of the ordinary

Hackaway is a weekend hackathon for creatives, designers and coders, ready to take on the challenge of building and launching new web services and apps.


Each Hackaway takes place at a unique and secret location.


Apply as an individual or as a team of up to three people. All you need to bring is your laptop and an open mind. Hackaway is free of charge.


We will leave central Stockholm at 10.45 on Friday, January 27th. We will get back again at around 21.30 on Sunday, January 29th.

Hackaway #4 - The future of transportation and traveling

During Hackaway #4 we'll explore the future of transportation and traveling. We have teamed up with Nobina Technology, Drive Sweden, Ericsson and Trafiklab. A few of their top brains will join us and outline the trends that are shaping the landscape of tomorrow. If you want to you can build a service using their APIs.

What to build? 

The goal with Hackaway is for your team to build a simple web service or app related to travel. An important part of the concept is to build something that "stands on it's own". The focus is on execution, and creating something that is simple and actually works. In general, "Keep it Simple" is great advice for any hackathon. The hackathon lasts for 24 hours and everything you build during Hackaway will of course be owned by you. Friday is for socializing and making new friends, the hacking begins on Saturday morning and ends on Sunday morning.

After the hackathon, you'll be given three minutes to present your hack, after which we’ll name a winner. The winner of the hackathon will get the great honor and opportunity to represent Sweden at Y4PT, the Global transport hackathon in Montreal 2017. 

Here are the most important criteria you'll be judged by:

  • Is it innovative? 
  • Does it work? 
  • Is it live?

What to pack?

  • Bathing suit
  • Warm sweater
  • Pajamas 
  • Laptop
  • Charger


As Hackaway gets closer we’ll share more details, what more to pack for the weekend and what the meeting point on the Friday will be. Don’t hesitate to contact Martina at if you have any questions.
