Join us for the second Rockford meeting of the Illinois Open Technology Challenge(ILOpenTech) at Eigerlab.
At this meetup, we will officially launch the contest. We published the rules, gave information on judging, and announced the prizes. We'll field any questions and be available to give advice on submissions. We'll also talk more about the data, facilitate team discussions and formation, and hear from the community about their technology needs. Be sure to review these blog posts to get up to date on what we're up to in Rockford:
