**Logistics Hackathon Postponed!**
In order to provide the best possible experience, we have decided to delay the Memphis Logistics Hackathon due to unanticipated and unique challenges involving API protocols and licensing for some partners. The decision to postpone the hackathon will allow ample time for all API providers to consult and exchange best practices.
As the first logistics hackathon in Memphis, this is a major opportunity for a truly unique and game changing experience, given the assembled participants. We therefore appreciate your patience as we work together to put together an even greater experience.
Our new target date will be in the fall, so keep an eye out for more information!
Home to the 4 R's - rivers, roads, rails, and runways - Memphis is one of the largest logistics hubs in the nation. With this in mind, Memphis is hosting the nation's first ever Logistics Hackathon. Developers and logistics professionals will come together for a weekend of competitive designing and coding, where they'll tackle logistics problems faced by innovative giants, such as FedEx, Mosaik, and Dwolla. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to get their hands on novel metrics and APIS to develop these logistics solutions.
Spearheaded by Start Co. and Memphis Bioworks, the Hackathon aims to see what is possible when the best and brightest programmers and developers in Memphis are connected with the best supply chain professionals. Hopefully, such collaboration will not end with the weekend, but instead will continue to evolve and grow, breathing new ideas and technology into Memphis's venerable and critical logistics economic sector.
Rasberry Pi Kits, Amazon Gift Cards, Cash, and more for participants and winning teams!
