WHAT IS SHIFT APPENS?

Shift APPens is a hackathon, always striving for a relaxed environment, where it seeks to foster healthy competition through a knowledge exchange from the world of technology among participants.

The goal is to create an application in 48 hours and defend it in a final pitch in front of a carefully chosen jury..

In this hackathon, are joined developers, designers, and entrepreneurs of the most diverse technological areas, coming from all over the country.
On the way to its 6th edition, Shift APPens is organized by the University of Coimbra's Computer Science Students and by jeKnowledge, a junior enterprise of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra.

HOW IS IT?

Counting on a relaxed environment and looking to promote a healthy competition and trade of different knowledge from the high-tech world, this hackathon makes it easy to develop hard and soft skills, like creativity, team spirit and the ability to work against the clock.
