JUNCTION 2017

NOVEMBER 23 - 26 | HELSINKI

A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF CREATORS

A UNIQUE HACKATHON EXPERIENCE

Founded in the Fall 2015 by students as a converging point for ambitious creators and coolest hardware, Junction is now Europe's largest hackathon. Our annual main event gathers over 1300 hackers from all over the world to Helsinki to get to know new people, learn from others and experience a hackathon like no other. Or have you ever heard of a hackathon with lasers before?

CUTTING EDGE TECH

For 48 hours you will have the latest hardware and APIs at your fingertips. From drones to thermal cameras and voice-controlled gadgets to VR Headsets and IOT sensors, Junction has it all. And the best part? You will have access to mentors from our partner companies to help and teach you how to push the tech as far as it can go.

We went to Junction to experiment, compete and find our limits. The unique environment helped us focus on our project throughout the weekend. The tools, tech and mentoring at the venue were critical for our success.
