'There are a lot of hackathons that result in little more than a pretty little presentation. For us here at Junction, however, of more significance than a set of slides is that ideas are, through action, transformed into actual concrete form. Now, one week prior to the start of Slush, Dipoli is expecting some 1,500 coders, designers and entrepreneurs from 77 different countries. They are coming here to get to know one another as well as to solve problems with passion together. If these figures are difficult to put into perspective, let’s just say that this will be Europe’s biggest hackathon.'
