The DevFest Algiers hackathon is primarily associated with university students from different technical backgrounds: programmers, ethical hackers, and software coders. It is a place where like-minded people come together to "hack" innovative ideas and build realistic, technical, and implementable solutions.

The goal of a Devfest Algiers hackathon is to come up with a solution related to the theme of the edition during the event and to create usable and functional software or hardware

product at the end of the event.

Hackathons last 48 hours and will include a prize for the winning teams.

About the theme

"Live AI: Get through daily life using AI"

There are a wide variety of current technological developments that use artificial

intelligence (AI), all of which empower us and help us fulfill our daily responsibilities.

We believe that artificial intelligence can play a role in the daily life of Algerian citizens,

making their lives easier and simpler. That's why, this year, we made sure to give our

hackers the chance to achieve that.
