Due to the Corona pandemic this year’s HACKADON will be an online event. This means you can join the event remotely. But we will offer you timeslots to pick up materials and prototype at brigk Makerspace in Ingolstadt. We will take care of everybody’s health with several actions.
All keynotes and workshops will be available as video conference and/or live stream.


The hackathon is designed that even in lockdown times with your daily work you can participate. That´s why we decided to go for 5 days. You can individually decide when you work on your awesome idea and then full throttle on the weekend!

Why HACKADON? HACKADON was the first smart city hackathon with Google Assistant in cooperation with GoogleMediaMarktSaturnIFG and INVG in Ingolstadt 2018.

One of Google’s smart home devices is the so-called Google Home mini, which looks like a donut. That’s why we named our past event HACKADON – a combination of “hackathon” and “donut”. But as you live in a great region nearby the DONau river (Danube), we thought we keep that name.

Last year, we decided to repeat this awesome event and start HACKADON as an annual series. So a new series of hackathons was born and it’s going to continue now.

For this year’s HACKADON we offer three different tracks, so a wide range of hackers can participate upon their preferences.

The challenges follow these tracks (further information are coming soon):

GAMIFICATION – build a game on the base of Ingolstadt’s digital twin.

URBAN MOBILITY DATA – collect. analyse. evaluate.

SUSTAINABILITY – one of the greatest challenges of our time.

What is the goal of HACKADON? Our hackathon this year offers three completely different tracks – from software only to hardware prototyping or a mixture of both. Get creative and have fun at developing a Ingolstadt based game, create solutions for collecting or evaluating urban mobility data to change it for good or join the sustainability track and take part in keeping the world as we know and love it.
Exhibit your talent for pioneering innovation at the cutting edge. Think outside the box and evolve solutions – there is always something new to discover.
