What is a Hackathon?
A Hackathon is an event in which people come together to solve a problem. Participants will combine creativity with problem solving in a high energy, collaborative environment. Hackathons are an opportunity for people to bring their unique skillsets, to learn, and to make a meaningful contribution.

Where do I start?
If you are interested in participating in this year's Hackathon, please contact us so that we can get you registered! Sign up individually or as a group. We will align you with a use case and a team and provide training resources to prepare you for the event.

How do I prepare?
We will provide training sessions so that you are armed with the skills needed for success! The training will cover key technologies (Cloud, Github, IoT, Machine Learning, AI, etc.). We will also arrange Autism Awareness sessions relating to the use cases. Please check back for updates as the event gets closer!
