Hacker Stories

Joey

“If you like to be challenged and to learn more about new technologies, Hack the Future will definitely be something for you! The event is not about winning, but about collaborating together with your teammate towards a common goal. The cool thing about the event is that the theme and location gives you the feeling that you are actually really hacking! You don’t have the feeling that you are in a ‘competition’ throughout the day, the crew and coaches helped us solving the challenges. I learned a lot and in fact, this was one of the coolest events about technology that I participated in. Highly recommended!”

“Hack The Future is a fantastic fun and learning experience in a spectacular setting and location. Students mingle with Cronos professionals in a competition with only winners.”

“For me, Hack The Future was an extraordinary experience. In the challenge we chose, both our technical and creative knowledge was tested. In fact, it was the ideal moment to put the skills we learned at school into practice. The winners of every challenge got the opportunity to pitch their results in front of a professional jury of entrepreneurs. And believe me, the final winners got an awesome prize. Everything was organized very well and the location was epic: Fort V, close to Antwerp! This historical location created a nice contraction with the state-of-the-art technologies that are used. I say this is a must do!”

“Last year, we started the day with a little briefing as we, ourselves, did not know what to expect from the students. It was the first time we participated so we were not sure if our assignments were too difficult (or easy). However, as soon as communicated, every student team started to solve the challenges in their prefered code language. There were teams who used .NET, others preferred Java or Python. We were surprised by how excited they were in hacking all day, without giving up at the hardest parts. A thrilling but crazy fun day!”
