Hackathon Tech for Good

Margo offers you to support an association by participating in its solidarity Hackathon, co-organized with Latitudes and makesense


On february 15, 16th,  Margo, Latitudes and makesense invite you to a strong human and technological experience: participating during 24h in a Tech For Good Hackathon.

The idea? You and your teammates will have 24h to propose and implement a solution to answer technical challenges for one of our partner association:


You are Developer ? Data scientist ? UX Designer ? Student ?

Looking to get involved with an association ?

Striving to live a solidarity experience, meet new passionate peoples, up for a new personal challenge?

Register for this adventure !


Some practical information :

This Tech For Good Hackathon will host 30 participants, structured in team of 3 to 4 people (you can register as a team or individually, we’ll bring single people together to build team from the ground up). Teams must be composed of at least 2 people with software development skills to provide working solutions to the associations. Participants must come with their own machines.

The Hackathon will be hosted at #LaPiscine, from 6 pm Friday 15th to 6 pm Saturday 16th February, giving 24 h to develop a technical solution answering one of the partner association defined subject. We wish participants to live the human experience strongly, for that we encourage you to stay on site to work/sleep, of course if it fits you better you can go back home for the night. All meal are offered to participants. 

Event will end on Saturday by a presentation of each team solution, in front of a 6 persons jury. The jury will reward one team for each subject, so three teams in total.


Winning teams rewards :

Three teams will be rewarded following solution presentations to the jury: one team for each subject.

We’re happy to give each winner a gift card for a value of 200€.

Furthermore, all projects will be published as open source so that anyone interested can continue to contribute to associations. Margo shows its commitment by providing time for its employees involved in the Hackathon to work on developed projects.

Is Blockchain really an energy chasm?

Regarding the blockchain technology, observers are endlessly debating many points which are, for the most part, totally false or at least only a very small side issue. And if there is one subject that has been debated for many months, it is for sure the energy-consuming aspect of blockchain. Thus, many experts argue about the misdeeds of blockchain on the environment, assuming that it is a real energy calamity for our planet. But then, who is really right in this battle between pro and anti blockchain on its energy consumption? Is there only one truth?
