Our Designveloper with a team of five joined in a global competition of AngelHack’s Vietnam 2016 Hackathon, took place in Ho Chi Minh City on June 25th – 26th, 2016. Wonderful foods and drinks, attractive prizes to win, AngelHack Ho Chi Minh 2016 Hackathon drew in all contestants and of course, we were not an exception.
We arrived at Silicon Straits Saigon, the venue of AngelHack Ho Chi Minh 2016, in early morning of Saturday June 25th. After check-in, we attended the opening ceremony featured by a welcome speech from Mr. Kenneth Tuan Nguyen Minh – Head of Marketing of Silicon Straits – at 9 am. It could be seen that all competitors were ready for the competition with a steely determination of being the winner.

Coming to this competition, Designveloper team brought out an application named Give on which you could exchange, give and receive old stuff that were no longer in use such as shirts, tables, or anything. Our aim was also to create an online community of those who were interested in doing charities with their outdated things.
Let’s see how we worked on Give at Hackathon Ho Chi Minh 2016.
And here we got Give done.
It was the second day that contestants felt stressful and tired. Luckily, foods and drinks were always available to re-energize them for the race. We also had time to relax and made friends together. Want to see some more photos of participants?
2 pm was a high time for us to present our project.
