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 a hackNY student hackathon, 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.
The spring 2013 hackNY student hackathon (our seventh!) will be April 6-7 at Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science (hackNY’s first student hackathon at Columbia!). It will be an exciting, well-attended event and we’re looking for sponsors.
