How it works?

What is this hackathon you speak of?

The DeveloperWeek Hackathon is a 30-hour app-building contest in downtown San Francisco - and is also the official kick-off of DeveloperWeek 2014! The purpose of the hackathon is to give developers, designers, and entrepreneurs the chance to pitch app ideas - form teams - build a prototype of their app - and present to our hackathon judges for a chance to be one of the top 3 hackathon winners who get publicity and connections during DeveloperWeek.
