MoDev Hackathon - over $12,000 in prizes!


Join our event partner MoDevDC compete for over $12,000 in prizes after the MoDevTablet Conference for an exciting Hackathon at Microsoft's Chevy Chase headquarters. Trust me, you will want to attend, just for the experience alone. 2 of our members, who actually are active in both groups, won 1st and 2nd place last year.

If you want to have a special Academy Zone Night Shift series of sessions prior to this event to network, idealize and form teams, let us know. We can also bring in experts to discuss some of the tools native and cross platform alike you may use to compete. Also we can practice UI/UX design leveraging mockup and wireframe tools prior to the event.

Are you ready to compete for over $12,000 in prizes? It's simple. Come spend a Saturday building the next awesome app by yourself or with a fun group of people and take a shot at many prizes awesome up for grabs.
