Announcing the Spring 2014 hackNY Student Hackathon

hackNY is excited to announce its ninth student hackathon on April 5th-6th at Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science!


As with each prior semester, hackNY will welcome hundreds of students from scores of universities around the country to participate in collaborative and creative coding challenges over 24 hours. The event will open with API demos from New York City startups selected by the student organizing committee.  Afterward students can attend our hackNY Masters Series featuring technical speakers discussing various topics of interest, consult technical ambassadors to think through their project scopes, meet other enthusiastic student hackers, enjoy food from the world’s greatest city and of course receive a few surprises along the way.  Students will work in teams around the clock to build projects based on the presented APIs and the event will culminate in student presentations before a panel of judges who will decide the winners and recipients of prizes.  Sound awesome?  It is. Registration is here!


We are excited for another great hackNY student hackathon! Information for sponsors, startups and students will be distributed shortly via twitter (@hackNY) and our newsletter.  For now, mark your calendars!
