The Homelessness Edition will kick off on April 11th in the heart of Dublin Tech Summit. Here, mobile developers will take on an innovation-sprint to create an app that helps connect the community to the homeless.

The winning team with the best mobile app will take home a prize pool worth 1,750 euros! As an extra, all participants will receive a free two-day pass to the Dublin Tech Summit (originally worth 349 euros!).

Jobbio’s Codefest is the latest in the series of one-day coding challenges hosted by Jobbio HIGHER: Jobbio’s flagship careers event at DTS, where Europe’s leading tech companies come together to attract, hire and connect with the most sought after talent.


Inspiration for mobile apps:

  • GPS tracker app to inform the community of where homeless people are in need
  • A solution that allows you to connect with charities and volunteer your time effectively
  • An app that connects local restaurants with people in need of a hot meal

Spend one day showcasing your skills at DTS amongst some of the industries best and brightest to address one of the largest issues faced in Dublin: homelessness.

Code a mobile app that can connect the community with the homeless.
