A Hack the Dot is a two-hour hackathon where coding school students, junior developers, experienced developers, non developers, marketers, designers and those with little or no computer programming skill come together to build ideas around a single domain name.

Our events are meant to be a quick and fun way to build a humorous (and functional) product quickly while meeting people in your tech/startup community.

There will be pizza. And beer. and soda.

What to Bring / How to Prepare:

• Bring your laptop and charger.

Not required but suggested for you coder types:

• Install the Atom text editor. Go here: https://atom.io/

• Setup a github.com (http://github.com/) account

How does it work?

Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams.

Step 2: The teams are provided with the same undisclosed domain name by Name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious.

Step 3: Teams have just two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. The team builds the most creative and fun idea for the domain wins.

Participants will be judged on four criteria: (1) functionality, (2) design, (3) humor, and (4) creative domain name interpretation.

What do you get at the event?

FOOD!

SWAG!

FRIENDS!

How much does it cost?

It’s FREE!
