NOI Hackathon SFScon Edition

24 hours of hacking, collaborating, co-creating, and developing for (currently secret) topics that will be revealed at the start of the Hackathon.

 

Generate new ideas alone or in a team. This one is for creative people, creators, developers, designers, data experts, entrepreneurs, tech geeks, coding lovers… of any level and with any background – just get involved!

 

Our Hackathon revolves around Open Data and Open Source and all developed projects will be published in a public git repository.

 

And, yes, we have prizes for our winners but the aim of the event is to inspire, so if you are on the fence about a career in tech, get involved and give it a go.
