American Underground Hack-A-Thon
Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 6:00 PM - Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 7:00 PM (EST)
Take part in the American Underground's first Hack-A-Thon. The event is open to all hackers ages 16+.
The first rule of what to hack at the American Underground Hack-A-Thon: there isn't one! This competition is open to all ideas, web or mobile. The only requirement is that what you create must be done from scratch and within the 24 hour timeframe of the competition.
We're also pleased to be working with StartupBus (startupbus.com) who is bringing a bus load of NYC developers to the American Underground as the first stop on their way to SXSW. The hackathon will conclude Sunday night, right as the bus is pulling in. Expect to meet fellow developers from around the East Coast.
