Hack-a-thon is an event where an individual or a group of two developers develop an application in ten hours, at the end of which a specialised committee with members from FRI, Blackberry, and a Slovenian team of BlackBerry device developers choose the winners. Experienced developers and experts will provide advice to participants during the development process.
