On the 10th and 11th of November we continued our global hackathon series with the 2nd event in 2017– this time in Singapore. It is the first collaboration of DigitalLife Campus and Startup Autobahn Singapore hosting a Hackathon together, where ideas not only spark from students but also from Startups.
