Ji-V Hack 2011 Hackathon & Workshop Series Launch
Saturday, January 15, 2011 from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM (CST)
Join Chicago’s hacking community to build applications for local startups. Criteria is set by one startup business to fit their business needs. Prizes are awarded based on the completed project. You don’t need to be a presentation pro to win this hackathon!
Your prototype will be judged not only on the initial criteria, but how much of the application is built in the given time-frame. Developers and UX Designers often spend their time at hackathons developing working applications and the winning teams end up being the one’s with the best presentation. Even if there are no working functions of the prototype. This hackathon series intends to recognize developers and designers for their dev skills as well as their creativity.
Not a skilled developer or designer? Don’t be intimidated! This is also a place for education so come to learn! Each team of hackers will be required to have at least one student developer/designer or one enthusiast.
