Join 200 developers from all over Europe at the TNW Hackathon

Our conference is really much more than just a conference. It is also a  long string of events taking place all over Amsterdam over multiple days. You can join us just for the conference or take more time and visit all the events.

On Tuesday and Wednesday we host the first ever TNW Hackathon. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we host the main conference with keynote speakers and our famous start-up rally and several interesting workshops. The Saturday after the conference we celebrate Queensday with more than a million people dressed in orange.

The TNW hackathon will bring worlds leading platforms (API’s and SDK’s) together with an international group of coders (Web and Mobile developers). We’re inviting a group of 200 Mobile and Web developers, programmers, graphic designers from all over Europe to come to Amsterdam to hack cool applications on top of worlds leading web API’s and mobile platforms. At the end of the weekend, the results will be presented in front of the group and a jury of leading entrepreneurs and investors.
