Background

Trainhack isn't just about trains, or hacking.


Trainhack is a hackathon that invites a group of creative nerds and enthusiasts on a train ride where the participants are tasked to create something that improves public transit. The event’s purpose is to spread knowledge of open data and APIs by creating a unique, challenging and above all fun event for the problem solvers and hackers in a wide range of communities.

  • Teams

    If you already have a team, then you’re all set. If you don’t, well not to worry. Once you’ve signed up for the event you’ll get access to our Slack channel where you can form a team or join an existing one.


    We will also host a meetup at the beginning of the event where people can get familiar with each other and give everyone a change to join a team before the hacking begins.


    Of course if you’d like to work alone you are welcome to do so, but we definitely recommend you joining a team, if not simply for the great people you get to know and work with.

  • Prizes

    Obviously we can’t spoil anything about this years prizes, except we are working on providing prizes that are at least as awesome as last years event. Speaking of which, last years 1st place winners were sent to Finland with accommodations paid for and tickets to attend Junction 2017 (where they actually won as well!). Now even if you didn’t manage to win 1st place you were able to win some truly great prizes, including any of the following:

  • More than prizes

    A great hackathon isn’t just about prizes. Even if we all look forward to winning something, in the end it’s all about the experience. That’s why we focus on great food, comfort and making sure we create a memorable experience for you as an attendee. Both last year, and this year, m.nu offers all hackers 250 SEK to buy anything from their shop, with delivery directly to your seat on the train.
