The creation of a local technical community and initiatives to improve the technical skills were required by the local community since the Brazil Catalyst Program. This need has surfaced again during the 2030 strategic discussions organized during the IWSC in Niteroi - Rio de Janeiro this.

Therefore, this project aims to organize the first Hackathon in Brasil with the main goal of create a strong local technical community, to support projects and develop new opportunities for new ideas, initiatives and academic researches, attending as well the community demand presented during the last years and discussions.
