Startup Hackathon #7

Hackathons are multi-day events where we invite developers and designers to come together to share ideas, form teams, and build an app or game.

Hackathons start off with idea pitches and then spend the rest of time planning and building. We wrap things up with every team sharing their demos with other participants and the community. Hackathons are a great way to get to know a new technology, learn to code, flex your mad programming or design skills, and work as part of a team, whether you're a student, rookie or pro.

This hackathon will be hosted by your friendly neighborhood meetup groups including YEGRB, Exchange.js, Edmonton.py, Ladies Learning Code, UXYEG, and GameCamp Edmonton.

Cost is only $25 (includes lunches and snacks on Saturday and Sunday; everyone's on their own for supper). Student and member rate is only $15. Tickets are non-refundable.
