MxHacks - Low-code hackathon - September 23–24, 2022
September 23–24, 2022
Hack for Good
Join the Hack
MxHacks 2022 challenges the Mendix maker community to build solutions for nonprofits that make a positive impact in the world. Assemble your team of four and get ready for the biggest low-code hackathon in the world, taking place in Boston, London, Rotterdam, and Singapore, or remotely from your own undisclosed hacker hideout.
Join us on September 23 and 24 for two days of hacking and contribute to making the world a better place through our Low-Code For Good program. Three nonprofit organizations, selected by Mendix, will challenge you and your team to build solutions that improve lives, safeguard the environment, conquer disease, fight for justice, or advance other good causes.
Meet other developers in the Americas, EMEA, or APAC and grow your network. Together, you can learn new things by joining workshops hosted by experts, following trainings by certified trainers, and striking up a conversation with one of the many coaches present at the hackathon. For those who are new to Mendix and want to explore your options, we’re organizing special Meet & Greet sessions with companies who are looking to hire developers and expand their team.
Look forward to an exciting weekend filled with learning, connecting, and fun, mixed in with a healthy dose of competition. Register now because in-person slots are limited!
Meet up in-person in Boston, Rotterdam, Singapore, and beyond. You can also join remotely from your own undisclosed hacker hideout.
A Global Experience
MxHacks brings together a global audience at the Mendix offices in Boston and Rotterdam, and an additional on-site location in Singapore. To include developers from every corner of the world, you can also join us remotely from anywhere in the world, or outside of it (pinging the ISS). Where you are is no longer a factor in who you can team up with or what region you can participate in. That’s right, regardless of where you are located, you can participate in any region and take on the challenge. The only additional challenge is performing in a different time zone. Even your team can be hybrid, with some members going to an on-site location while others call in remotely.
Each region will run the hackathon in its local time zone to make sure participants can hack at convenient times in their own region. This works as follows:

Boston – Mendix Office

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the format of MxHacks 2022?
MxHacks 2022 will be a hybrid event — we want to ensure that all hackers get the chance to participate and have a great experience while keeping safe and healthy.
Who can attend?
All makers are welcome! This includes Mendixites, partners, customers, students, and anyone else who can develop with Mendix. Attending a hackathon is a great way to meet like-minded people with the same passion for development, design, and solving problems. Whether you’ve just joined the community or you’re a lvl10 veteran, MxHacks has a place for everyone. You need a Mendix account to sign up when registrations open up.
I'm ready to participate - how do I stay updated?
Register or leave your email address and we’ll deliver the latest updates straight to your morning coffee wake-up routine. You can also join the Mendix Community Slack and watch the #announcements and #mxhacks-general channels.
How do teams work?
Team can hold up to 4 people. If you don’t have a team prior to MxHacks, don’t worry! We’ll connect you to others who are looking for a team beforehand and we’ll organize a match-making session on day 1 for those who couldn’t build a team before. You may also participate on your own.
What if I don’t have a team or my team is not complete?
Don’t worry! We’ll connect you to others who are looking for a team beforehand and organize a match-making session on day 1 for those who couldn’t build a team before. You may also participate on your own, of course.
How much does MxHacks cost?
Admission to MxHacks is free for everyone. If you decide to join in person, keep in mind that there might be extra costs involved, like travel and lodging.
What can my team build?
The best solution that you can create in two working days, delivered as a Mendix app. You’re encouraged to integrate your app with other services and tools to make it the most powerful solution it can be. Detailed requirements will be shared when the event starts.
Cool, cool, cool… but what can I win!?
We wouldn’t want you to only have fun, connect with other makers, and challenge your creativity, now, would we? Each region (Americas, EMEA, and APAC) will award first, second, and third place with matching prizes.
