FarmHack.NL is a catalyst for solutions, innovations and open collaborations in the agricultural and farming sector.
We mobilize coders, developers, creatives and domain experts to tackle challenges that stand in the way of widespread adoption of IT by farmers.
We organize hackathons, knowledge exchange events, bootcamps and help startups turn ideas into minimum viable products.
Our motto is “make things open, it makes things better”.
We strive to organise open, inclusive and collaborative events. The FarmHack Organization harbours open data, prototypes and concepts used/crafted during/after our events. Gitter is our public square: join us for a chat!
