The Hacking House Program is a 3-month cycle with 4 seasons per year. The first season of the program will be launched in the Bay Area in the beginning of September 2018.

Every season kicks-off with 10 projects and 30 students who will be selected to join the program. Once selected, project teams will move into the Hacking House for this period, learn on IoT and Sigfox technology, and work on real world projects over a rich and intensive training period. The project teams work in direct contact with the corporate project managers as well as the device makers and startups. At the end of this period students will be certified as Hacking House graduates, and join the Alumni club, followed by great career opportunities. 

We will kick-off the first Hacking House with a European Summer Camp in June 2018 in Paris, gathering these great talents, as well as Sigfox partners for an amazing challenging week.
