ABQ Hack 48-hour Hackathon: POSTPONED
Friday, May 11, 2012 at 4:00 PM - Sunday, May 13, 2012 at 5:00 PM (MDT)
It's the Albuquerque area's first 48-hour Hackathon!
POSTPONED! WE REGRET TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED... WE HOPE TO ANNOUNCE NEW DATE AND DETAILS SOON
Hackathons are events were software developers, creative designers, and idea people come together and design and develop a project within 48 hours. It is a competition where participants build startup ideas which are judged at the end of the event. The general rule for this competition is that all code must be fresh, but if you interested in tweaking something from elsewhere, that is fine as well.
Orientation and Kickoff - Your event coordinators will welcome you and present an introduction to AbqHack.
Team pitches - Each team will quickly present their demo idea and solicit new team members.
Hacking - Teams will hack on their demos.
Demos - Each team will demo their hacks for the group and judges.
Prizes - The event coordinators and judges will choose the winning team based on the best technical achievement.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
DEVELOPERS - Tickets are exclusively for developers who have software development skills and want to hack in one of the projects to present.
DESIGNERS - Tickets are exclusively for people who want to give a magic touch to apps that hackers code up.
