First Annual Compare Metrics + Leap Motion Hackathon
Friday, February 21, 2014 at 7:00 PM - Sunday, February 23, 2014 at 8:00 PM (CST)
The First Annual Compare Metrics + Leap Motion Hackathon is a platform for up and coming software engineers to showcase their skills and abilities, and help promote themselves to a collection of companies in the Austin startup community.
The intention is to allow developers/hackers to create shippable applications using a Leap Motion Controller following one or more of the 3 tracks offered: Discovery, Gaming, and Design.
Compare Metrics is partnering with Leap Motion and Capital Factory to create an innovative hacking environment using Leap Motion's technology and foster the development of new applications. To win, entrants are required to produce a commercially viable web, software or experiential application that can be submitted for official approval to Airspace, the Leap Motion App Store.
Food and Drinks provided.
Mentors will be onsite during the event, including: Garrett Eastham, CEO of Compare Metrics; and Daniel Plemmons, Developer Experience Engineer at Leap Motion INC.
