Event description
A 48-hour Hackathon to challenge talented devs, designers, and creators to build cutting-edge solutions that can transform sports.

About this event

**This hackathon also includes a seperate 24-hour contest for high school students and those under the age of 18. Please be sure to register anyone in that portion of the event here: https://nextech.org/programs/5ghackathon/

Do you have an idea for an app that can highlight how 5G will disrupt the way we experience, consume, track or engage with sports? Do you want to be one of the first to code and test solutions for a 5G network?

Then join us on October 22-24th for a very special 5G themed Sports Hackathon produced by the AT&T Developer Program. This event will bring together developers, designers, and creators to hack innovative and disruptive 5G mobile solutions for Sports. You bring the innovative ideas and designs and we'll bring the tech to help you transform them into apps in just one weekend.

What is an 5G hackathon? 5G mobile networks will open the door to new experiences that will change how we live, work, and play. Faster network speeds and near real time latency will enable new compelling experiences. For this event AT&T invites developers, designers, and creators to imagine and create those experiences by coding mobile solutions that highlight the benefits of a 5G network. Developers will be challenged to build solutions that demonstrate the impact of the high bandwidth and/or low latency of a 5G network.

You Bring...

Your laptop, skills & ideas. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset and/or team-up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ with #5GSportsHack. Whether you are a developer, designer, project manager, or just interested in tech, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your skills are needed!

We Supply...

An indoor 5G test environment, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. We will have technical mentors to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools. We will also have loaner hardware on-site for you to use in your solutions.
