By: CriteoLabs / 09 Oct 2013

Criteo organizes a hackathon for the developer community to showcase their talent and for a chance to win a US geektrip. Any skills for computer programming or strong ideas about digital advertising ? Web, mobile, server … all technologies are concerned. All participants (age +18) can register online: developers (professionals or hobbyists), graphic designers, data scientists, and anyone with strong ideas.

The theme: invent the future of digital advertising.

If you hesitate, then why not come to our workshop on Oct. 10th at 7pm – 32 rue Blanche, Paris 9 to learn more about Criteo and this special hackathon ? Beers and Pizza provided after the sessions. Register online –

Not convinced yet ? here what from Romain Niccoli, CTO and co-founder of Criteo wants you to know about it : “Our engineers love the challenge and are constantly thinking of new ways to use technology and how they apply to digital advertising, organizing a hackathon allows us to be open to other approaches and ways of thinking, and to find in the tech community who are able to implement these ideas. The format of a hackathon is based on a specific state of mind for individuals from all universe, they don’t rely only of what is existing but can choose to imagine the future, a state of mind that is fully consistent with what Criteo does every day.”

How it works ? pitch on Friday evening, composition of teams (5 including a mentor from Criteo) 48 hours to create an app and a jury that will deliberate on Sunday afternoon to select a winner.
