It’s been 125 days since we last gathered at Innovation Place to create some killer apps with our sponsor APIs – I think we’re about due for another Hackathon!
HackREGINA Spring 2014 will be on March 15th at Innovation Place
HackREGINA is a one-day API programming hackathon where teams of developers, designers, and analysts create applications that integrate with one or more of the sponsors’ APIs. Judges from the local tech community judge based on awesomeness and technical difficulty, and we award fantastic prizes to the winning teams.
As is our usual custom, we’ll be starting with a networking event on Friday evening for everyone to scope out the competition and meet our sponsors. The hackathon will start Saturday morning at 9 AM, and participants will have until 5 PM to build an application using one or more of our sponsoring APIs. The day will end with team presentations and judging from industry experts, prizes handed out to our best teams, and a wrap-up party! We’ll make sure you have enough food and drink to see you through the day.
