This competition will work as a separate and smaller challenge, apart from our main hackathon.

We’ve been wanting to expand our competitions for quite some time (since the beginning, actually) and this year we were finally able to take the leap.

We are open to all the feedback we can get, and we really hope this competition can become a cornerstone of Make or Break!

See you in Porto!
