I want just to give you a brief personal impression about 1 ½ days of my last week as a Developer Advocate at IBM.
Being one the of coaches at the largest Healthcare Hackathon in Europe was incredible.
Around 150 hackers worked for two days in 25 international teams including students, companies and startups. More numbers you can find on the official webpage Healthcare Hackathon in Europe .
We as humans, health is our most important asset, at the Healthcare Hackathon it was brought to the foreground again with the help of technology and new ideas.
Here I want just to highlight some ideas, I was personally impressed.
I put my free interpretation for each of these challenges under each bullet point of the challenges.
