We’re headed to Boston in an effort to bring together passionate developers, designers, and entrepreneurs to create innovative approaches to topics such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, first responders, national security, and environmental conservation. Our sponsors are excited to award cash and prizes to the most innovative creations.
At an ExpeditionHack Series Hackathon, you’re not limited to one challenge. Come with an idea, or an open mind, and build:
Come to get noticed, get recruited, develop new skills and learn new things in one of our tech talks, make amazing new contacts, network, and hopefully… go home with some sweet, sweet moola! We will be awarding thousands in cash and prizes to the top winning teams, as well as other door prizes and raffles!
