hackNY Student Hackathons:
Since April 2010, hackNY’s student hackathons have attracted hundreds of students from scores of universities for 24-hour events in which participants collaborate on creative coding challenges. At the beginning of hackNY student hackathons, New York City startups selected by the student organizing committee demo their APIs. Students then form teams to brainstorm ideas for projects to build based on these APIs, working through the night to turn their ideas into reality in time to present before a panel of judges the following day, competing for prizes and glory. hackNY created a video of a hackNY student hackathon for you to enjoy:
Check out the hackNY Flickr account for photos of the event.
the spring 2013 student hackathon has been made possible by our generous sponsors. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors.
