The 2014 RVA Hackathon will be a one day, 10 hour event on April 12th 2014. Come join us and lets make something awesome together.
The RVA Hackathon will be a ten hour challenge to develop something of your choosing. There will be gifts (t-shirts, mason jars) and awards for Best in Show, Best Concept, Best Design, Best Execution, and Crowd Favorite. All we ask is that participants are honest about the amount of work they have done prior to the event on their idea so that the playing field is as level as possible.
Sound like a decent way to spend a Saturday? Register Now! We can only admit a limited number of people and slots will fill up fast.Register Now
