Event Details

About M-RGE

M-RGE is a new, FREE work space and community for designers & hackers. Membership is still open until October 15th, apply here!

The M-RGE Hackathon

User Experience and Visual Design are becoming increasingly important in today's technology startups. Yet hackathons don't attract designers because design isn't valued enough.

At the M-RGE Hackathon, we will flip the traditional hackathon model on its head by having designers pitch developers. In addition, design will be as important in winning as technology.

The M-RGE Hackathon will be one of the best events you've ever attended, with amazing food, shwag, and prizes.
