Event Details

Esri and the City of Austin are sponsoring a hackathon to see who can build the most awesome mapping/data mashup in under five hours! The hackathon kickoff will happen during Esri's epic Geo Brunch at the Lavahouse. Just grab the Esri trolley to get there! 

It’s free! You can participate as an individual or a team. Prizes will be awarded to the winners by the hackathon partners (Esri and the City of Austin). Breakfast, lunch, coffee and beer will be available throughout the day, and there will be high speed Internet access and comfortable couches. 


Simply use Esri maps with Leaflet and Austin City Data to make the best/most interesting map in under 4 hours! You'll have from Noon to 4:15pm to hack the best app together!
