TechCrunch is well known for their hackathons; huge gatherings of software devs building pretty amazing things in under 24 hours.
RSVP on Eventbrite, spots are limited.
We're bringing a bunch of hardware to hack on. You may bring your own but assembly and coding all needs to be done on-site.
The hacking actually starts at 1:30pm on Saturday. Enjoy dinner at 7, food and snacks at midnight, and breakfast at 7am the next morning all included as part of the free ticket.
You NEED to Win this Thing
It's often said that Hardware is Hard, but it's also really cool. We think that could give you an edge over the software-only hacks. What a great story it would be for the Hackaday crowd to come in and take the top prize!
TWENTY HOURS OF HARDWARE
Show up at 12:30pm on Saturday, May 2nd. By 9:30am the next morning you must have a working piece of hardware having been totally built on-site. Starting at 11am on Sunday you have 60-seconds to show off your build.
We're not kidding around when we say the judging criteria for this hackathon is “Awesomeness". TC is putting up $5,000 to the winning team. Obviously someone who hangs out around Hackaday should be the winner here so go sign up!
I have a team of 2 formed, anyone else want to join? We are on the upper deck.
