After last year’s success, PayPal Battle Hack – which has drawn over 2,000 from all over the world – starts again this year and includes Poland among competitor countries. The 2014 PayPal Battle Hack cities include: Tel Aviv (Israel), Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, and Boston (United States), Toronto (Canada) and Berlin (Germany). Battle Hack Warsaw will be the first PayPal’s developer focused event to be hosted by Poland.

During PayPal Battle Hack – one of the world’s biggest “developer” focused events – , developers are tasked with building an application that incorporates PayPal API or Braintree and Venmo Mobile SDKs, in order to solve a local problem of their choice,  while also producing mind-blowing codes.
