Hello, World! A New Community is Born

For 2015, we imagined a fresh start for THE Port, and we want you to be part of it. You will find an updated website, a regular newsletter, and...a whole new community! 
We heard you saying that THE Port is
more than just a hackathon- it is a life experience, and we want this to be true. The hackathon is just the beginning to lifelong enriching exchanges. It builds bridges across disciplines and people. It is the voice of innovation...and thrives on networks! That’s the reason why you are receiving this newsletter...Keep up with what’s hot, and share your updates with THE Port Community. As former participants, mentors, and experts, you were able to make outstanding contributions to your fields with your joint team work and personal expertise. Imagine how great would be to keep the ball rolling! THE Port is therefore proud to launch the first THE Port hackathon reunion which will take place in Geneva (CH) on Thursday 5 February 2015 Lady Godiva's pub | 8pm. Save the date in your agendas, we look forward to see you soon!

THE Port hackathon is back in 2015

This year, we set for another adventure...and you will get to decide which topics deserve to enter the next THE Port Hackathon this Fall 2015!!
