First Garage48 hackathon in Odessa- First day!

Why U so rainy, Odessa?

It's the first time Garage48 is taking place in Odessa, and we love it! Except the rain. We really don't enjoy the rain that apparently decided to come down for this weekend only. But back to the point- as usually, hackathons in Ukraine are full of kick-ass engineers. Just imagine, over 50% of the participants were backend developers! Wow, right? This time 19 amazing ideas were pitched on the stage of the new and fabulous Terminal42. The entire room was packed with mind-blowing can-do attitude, you could feel it in the air. Though not all ideas were accepted, as it happens due to demand, they all deserve a huge applause and attention! The ideas that were lucky enough to be formed to teams are currently in full work-mode. Good luck to all 11 teams (the teams that made it are marked in bold)!
