The Digital Sustainability Conference is a yearly event that has been taking place since 2017, mostly in Bern, Switzerland. DINAcon is organised by a small organising committee, together with students of the University of Applied Sciences Graub√ľnden (Joint Degree with Bern University of Applied Sciences). The organisation of the event was made possible by CH Open and a number of generous sponsors & partners.

As the official and traditional after-event of DINAcon, the HACKnights are a look behind the scenes of the presented projects and initiatives, a good opportunity to get started as contributor. Welcoming people of all levels of technical skill, inspired by open hackdays and hackergartens, the HACKnights encourage DINAcon participants to post issues and hands-on tasks from projects presented at the conference.

"All relevant and reasonable proposals to start, improve or support open source projects are welcome: this is an open platform, add your challenges and let's dig in!"

The 2023 edition of the HACKnight was sponsored by Proxeus Association, and featured among other things translations of several presentations into English on request of DINAcon participants. You can find these, as well as the challenges, on the Dribdat site:

The DINAcon HACKnight is a way to learn about and contribute to Open Source projects in a hands-on way. This event is open to all, and caters to all levels of technical skill. Our focus will be on all projects nominated and showcased at, the Swiss digital sustainability conference - other open source/data/hardware projects are welcome. Committers and experts are on hand to guide you through to your first bug report or code commit!

All Challenges posted at are announced at the start. Visit the site to browse activities from previous years.
