Event description

Description

The Border Community – Homeland Security Build-A-Thon is a New Mexico focused event for software developers to collaborate and develop border community solutions. It is a weekend build-a-thon where coders will come together, form teams, and build app prototypes or features related to the theme of New Mexico homeland security.

The goal is to develop an innovative communications application to allow citizens along the US/Mexico border to share real-time information confidentially with the NM Emergency Operations Center to a secure database.

Participants will pitch ideas to enhance reporting and responsiveness to community needs along the southern border of New Mexico, with potential for statewide expansion. After a keynote presentation, participants will form teams to work together on a prototype. Everyone will have the weekend to build and develop a prototype to be presented on Sunday to a panel of judges.

Finally, the weekend will culminate with an awards ceremony, with cash prizes and scholarships!

The Border Community – Homeland Security Build-A-Thon will run from September 13-15, 2019.
