The city of Tuzla was represented by a team called ‘Pannonian sailors’that was consisted of Tarik Dahić, Haris Selmanović, Tarik Fazlić and Adnan Dizdarević from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, and Tarik Omerćehajić from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Tuzla in a 24-hour Hackathon. The theme of the Hackathon was SMART CITIES, specifically solutions that can improve the quality of life of citizens or deal with environmental issues.

Our students competed with 11 teams and in the category of students they won the 1st place and a valuable prize in the amount of 10,000 kuna’s. Their idea was called "Student Cast" which is a platform through which students communicate and share information about campus developments. The platform can also be used to create learning groups, and facilitates the dissemination of essential information on the campus. It is based on the latest technologies, and application does not strictly require internet connection during its work. The platform uses a distributed network based on peer to peer communication, which is a great advantage as there is no risk of breaking down together with the network, and it is always available for communication.

Once again, our students presented the University of Tuzla and the city of Tuzla in the best possible way outside the borders of Bosnia and Herzegovina and confirmed their quality and quality of knowledge acquired during the studies at our university.
