3. Check out the judging criteria and HR Hackathon online Rules here:


  • I will send weekly updates to all registered
  • on Easter Monday, April 13th, I'll open the project pitch ideas phase.
  • I will send a link to a Google Form where you can describe what your project idea is, what skills you bring and what further skills you are looking for.
  • the project idea pitch phase will run until Thursday, April 16th, 3 PM CET.
    • more info on that next week and on Monday, April 13th.

The agenda is subject to change or to be modified depending on the number of attendees, projects, submissions and availability of the judges.

Also, I will be working on several different winning categories as soon as I have more visibility on everyone's project ideas and final submissions.

What else should you do before the event kicks off?

  • think about a cool project idea you would like to work on during the HR Hackathon online.
  • as a rule of thumb for project ideas, let your imagination fly: Come up with the craziest thing you'd love to build for HR, employees, freelancers or job seekers in these crazy times.
  • the crazier the idea, the better it will point out the direction in which HR Tech is heading.
  • and you might actually create the next big thing!

The HR Hackathon online is the safe environment to test your idea even if you think it's completely wild.
Try it out!

Get familiar with the submissions requirements and judging criteria.

Have fun, and invite your friends to sign up, too.

See you soon.

Have a great weekend.

Kind regards from Strasbourg,
