Windy City Hackathon
Participants of the Windy City Hackathon will present what they built over the last month in front of a panel of judges. The judges will then pick the winners for each category and we'll award prizes. There will also be a raffle for prizes for all Hackathon participants who submitted their app to any of the app stores.
Join us before and after the presentations for networking and food. This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow Chicago developers. Talk about what you learned during the hackathon month or what cool projects you've been working on.
