re:publica TEN

The re:publica is one of the largest and most exciting conferences about digital culture in the world. Since its foundation in 2007, it has grown from a cozy blogger meeting with 700 participants into a wide-ranging “society conference”, with 7000 visitors in 2015. Representatives of digital culture share their knowledge and decision-making tools, and discuss the future of the information society. Here they can mingle with activists, scientists, hackers, entrepreneurs, NGOs, journalists, social media and marketing experts, and many others. This fosters innovation and creates synergies between net politics, online marketing, network technology, digital society, and (pop) culture. What is more, around 43 percent of re:publica participants are female – far more than at many other similar events.


What will the digital future of banking look like? And how do topics like retail and smart data play into it? These questions and many more will be addressed as part of our Post/ bank hackathon series. We are looking for developers, designers, start-ups and students and everyone who's interested to join us in Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Frankfurt and Bonn. To stay updated with the details, subscribe to our newsletter!

It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but try to keep things within just limits.
  2. Code Review - Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning.
  3. Ownership and IP - Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.
