Startup Tucson Hackathon

August 10, 2012 - August 11, 2012

[social4i size="small" align="align-left"]

Please join us on August 10th for a hackathon in sunny Tucson!
Work in teams, develop something over 24 hours, and compete for glory!

Build with Us or Build Your Own

Throughout the day, we will be building a complete application from start to finish. Nothing huge, the important point is to finish it and have fun. If you already have a great idea for what to build, bring that idea with you to the hackathon. Even better, bring along anything you can prepare ahead of time (sketches, designs, webpage mockups, etc.) and use the time and information provided to develop your idea into a working application, then share it with the world.

At 3pm Saturday, we’ll invite you to share your application with the group. Judges and attendees will rate the apps, and there will be prizes and glory for the winners. Swag for everyone else.

What Do I Need?

We will provide facilities, power, food, refreshments, and experts to help you code and write your application. Just bring your laptop, ideas, and enthusiasm to complete the mix.

When and Where?

The Startup Tucson Hackathon will take place over 24 hours starting at 4pm on Friday August 10th. It will be held in Spoke6 at 6th St. and 6th Ave.

Why?

We want to bring Tucson’s developer’s TOGETHER. Plain and simple. The internet goes only so far. The synergy that happens when coders get together at a hackathon is a unique, exciting, and beautiful thing. This is your chance to hack together that crazy idea you’ve had in the back of your mind. Make it happen!
