**Make sure to register for this free event on Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hack-the-dot-galvanize-platte-tickets-36291075584)**
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.
