Is it possible to recreate the buzzing atmosphere of a hackathon, online? The organizers of The Global Hack tried—and succeeded! More than ten thousand people from all over the world joined in to solve the Covid-19 crisis and hack together.

It has been a crazy experience, just like any hackathon—and it brought the whole world together, in their own homes!
