Congratulations to all the teams who took part in this great hackathon, which was attended by 112 people! The final phase of the competition was held on Thursday, 6 March 2015 in Paris. The 6 finalist teams left School 42, where the final stage of the hackathon was held, happy and their arms loaded with prizes.
