Can you Build a Web, Mobile or Cloud
App in 24 Hours?
Developers: caffeinate and get ready to dominate! Bring your laptops, phones, gadgets and dev tools to the That Conference Chicago Hackathon for the inaugural 24-hour coding challenge. Develop your own web, mobile and/or cloud app, present it and compete for your share of prizes. Winners will walk away with mad props and cool loot.
And to add even more fun, your city's reputation is on the line. That Conference is running hackathons across multiple cities to find the best developers. The top two teams from each city will get to compete to win the audience's vote during That Conference in August.
What to Expect
The Chicago event kicks off on Saturday, June 9th at the Illinois Technology Association and runs through the night until Sunday afternoon. Developers are free to use any technology to build any kind of web, mobile and/or cloud applications they choose. There are no limits on team size, but where's the fun in going it alone?
Any Technology, Any Platform
Participants do NOT have to be here the full 24 hours, though we certainly encourage it (it'll be a lot of fun!). We do ask registrants to indicate which times they'll be at the hackathon so we can plan food, etc.
Judges will be on hand on Sunday afternoon to pick the top 2 teams. Feel free to invite your friends to watch you present.
What to bring
Bring your laptop (and powercord), phones, gadgets and development tools and anything you need to be productive. And your A-game. You're going to need that.
Space is limited, so RSVP soon!
Food, beverages and refreshments will be provided.
