Mark your calendars for a new Nashville Hackathon October 15-21 for the first Nash Hack Weekathon.
And read on to learn how you can get involved.
What’s Nash Hack Weekathon?
It’s a hackathon, preceded by a pitch competition and a week of open consulting sessions. And it’s FREE. It will offer developers, designers, product managers, and marketers an opportunity to stretch your current skills or try out something new.
The event focuses on a few phases:
- Pitch competition: Anyone can pitch a project idea. A panel of judges will select featured teams that will advance to a week of consulting sessions.
- Weekday evening events: Featured teams will receive consultation from experts in the local tech community and meetup groups – with topics ranging from user feedback, UX design, Agile planning, and more – to improve their project ideas.
- Hackathon: Join a team, start a team, or work on an individual project during the 48-hour community hackathon.
- Presentations/Demos: Featured teams will present their projects for prizes. Everyone else is invited to demo their work science-fair style for other awards.
For those who are not a part of a featured team, there are still plenty of ways to participate in the event. The weeknight meetups are open to anyone interested in learning more about the designated topic. Additionally, all are welcome to create their own teams to participate in the hackathon, or simply to come and work on a project of their own. Demos at the conclusion of the hackathon will be open to the public and will include voting for awards.
We’re excited to bring this event to the community and can’t wait to see the projects come alive during the hackathon!
