What is it about?

ACDC stands for Arctic Cloud Developer Challenge. It is a hackathon that happens every year at a venue in Holmenkollen. It's 3 days of hackathon + 1 day hangover. The event was created as a social happening by and for the community as a place where like-minded IT professionals can engage in friendly competition without worrying about the mercantile challenges.

Our goal is to push technology to new limits while we learn from each other and socialize. This great event has been hosted for over 10 years at the beautiful Voksenåsen.
