In 2012 EA’s DICE Studio in Stockholm, Sweden hosted two Hackathons, one for University Students and one for Industry Professionals.
Each event was themed “Escape from dev/null” had about 35 participants in the Industry Professional event and about 25 participants in the Student event. After a rigorous technical review of the code by the Battlelog jury on site, there was a prize ceremony where iPad’s, graphics cards and EA games were distributed to the winning teams. In continuation of the coding festivities DICE held a dinner for the participants at the DICE studio later that week.
The success of the DICE Hackathons have paved the way for future EA Hackathons. Stay tuned for even more in the upcoming year!
