Pioneer Works is organizing its first hackathon. We aim to bring together students, artists, and developers to help everyone express themselves through technology.
What exactly is a hackathon? A hackathon is a 24 hour event that revolves around learning, collaboration, and creation. In 24 hours we want to empower people and provide them with the tools needed for development of applications for the web, mobile phones, or even just cool hardware (i.e. wearable tech, interactive displays, etc.). There are no limits as to what can be created at the hackathon. However, prizes will be awarded in categories such as “best transportation app,” “best weather preparedness app,” “best community development app,” etc. to help the Red Hook community.
