HackSquad: Techcrunch Disrupt HACKATHON!

Techcrunch Disrupt is back!  Register for the event and RSVP and use this Meetup to form or jump on a Code Crew team. More information about the hackathon is below.


We kick the conference off with our incredibly popular weekend Hackathon. The Hackathon will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 3-4, bringing together hackers and developers from all over the world. Teams join forces to create a product within 24-hours. During the Hackathon energy drinks are flowing, TechCrunch writers are scribbling interview notes, Nerf gun attacks are rampant and much, much more. Once the Hackathon ends, every team presents their hack to a panel of expert judges and audience members, and the winners go on to present their product on the Disrupt stage. At past Hackathons, we’ve seen everything from useful services to hilarious products. You might just end up as big as these guys.

    I found out about this event a bit too late and I see that there are no more tickets available? Does anyone have an extra ticket to spare? Thanks!
