Welcome to Techsylvania

Hello and welcome to Techsylvania, the place where inspiration, ideas and knowledge lead to the creation of new projects and collaborations! This time it’s not about Dracula, food nor exceptional places to see, but about technology! This is because Techsylvania is the biggest tech event in Transylvania and one of the biggest in the CEE Area, tapping on the potential of the more than 4000 tech and computer science graduates living and working in the city.

In between May 31st and June 2nd, the first edition of Techsylvania will bring together the region’s foremost creative minds, exceptional speakers, tech guys and innovators that will share their experience and knowledge in order to boost innovation and technological development right in the heart of Romania.

Techsylvania is a two-part event starting with a 24-hour hackathon that will take place on May 31st and June 1st, and ending up on June 2nd with an amazing one day conference that will bring on stage the best and brightest tech minds of the region.

During the hackathon we welcome the best developers in the region and we challenge them to develop disruptive apps on connected and wearable technologies, while having the opportunity to explore the devices provided by our partners.

Wondering what to expect during the hackathon? Oh well, during the 24-hours event you’ll get the chance to work next to more than 100 developers on different types of wearable devices and connected technologies. You can either team up with your friends or join an existing team to build an app that has the power to change the world. At the end, you will showcase your product and convince us of its potential. The best teams will be awarded, and the top 3 projects will not only receive free passes to the conference, but will also have the chance to present their projects in front of the entire audience of Techsylvania.
