MassHack Hackathons are all about innovation. Innovation fuels the economy and helps solve some of the day’s greatest challenges. We need more innovation and to help drive this we are creating one of the largest crowd-funded and crowd-sourced programs – the Massachusetts Hackathon 2014 (1/30 to 2/1). Developed to be able to bring competitive teams of one-to-four developers into a structured 48-hour applications development environment, MassHack 2014 brings the best of the Left Coast’s hackathons together with the venture capital and academic communities of the Right Coast. The Boston metropolitan area has long been home to cool and creative companies, and now we have a world-class competition to challenge the best and brightest. Join a Hackathon team, attend the Expo & Workshop, or become a Sponsor or Exhibitor! www.MassHack.com

    Like to thank the organizers for putting this event together. The snag a stool project was interesting, and wish them the best of luck. In addition, I would like to commend the guest speakers, including Mark Zuckerberg and Drew Houston, for supporting positive immigration reform. It's comforting to know that U.S. citizens are now recognizing the problems with the immigration system, and see the need for major change. There has been progress in the last few years with the DREAM act, but there is still a lot to be done. Thank you.
