MonkeyBars & Gogo Present
The 2014 Hackathon
MonkeyBars has teamed up with Gogo to bring a great new hackathon to Chicago's tech scene! We'll push more details as they become available, so keep an eye on this and our Facebook event page. In the meantime, find more ways to get involved!
Join us for a chance to improve Gogos product offerings and express your unique creativity. Most importantly, come network with Chicago's tech gurus while working on products used by thousands.
Generate a product or idea that helps air travelers stay connected to the things they care about most - loved ones, entertainment, or work. Review Gogo's API below:
HOWEVER, you are not limited to the above. Thinking outside the box is greatly rewarded.

- Teams cannot consist of more than FIVE (5) members
- A teams project doesn’t have to be brand new, but members MUST explicitly state what was built DURING the hackathon. If we find out or strongly suspect a prior build trying to pass as a new build, the team will be disqualified.
- Teams may use any coding language desired. Bringing your own tools is welcomed and encouraged, but must be used in a way that does not compromise the safety of others.
- If you cease to function like a decent human being, (fighting, harassing others without consent, etc.) you may be asked to leave.
When & Where
Playgrounds are an environment that encourage exploration, creativity and new connections. Unfortunately, these places become harder to find as we get older, yet, our need for them hasn’t diminished.
MonkeyBars is all about creating spaces to fill this void.
