Devpost announced the 2020 Tunisian Smart Cities Online Hackathon. This hackathon is about developing the smartest sustainable solutions for the Tunisian municipalities. It is a great opportunity for those who are interested in making their city a smarter place to live. 

Devpost will give participants resources and incentives to go out of their way to learn new things from each other and apply the skills they have. The participants will be in close contact with municipalities in order to develop smart applications that solve their specific problems in the following topics:

  • Smart Governance.
  • Smart Health.
  • Smart Mobility.
  • Smart Energy.

  • Smart Food and Agriculture.

By the end of the hackathon, Devpost hopes participants will have created cool new things and also become better problem solvers. Devpost hopes also that municipalities will use their developed applications.
