From the original description:
After a wildly successful event in NYC we’re excited to see what a little home team advantage will bring to Hackathon Disrupt SF! We’ll provide the pizza if you bring the brain power.
The marathon 24-hour hack will run Saturday to Sunday, September 25th – 26th. After a lightning round of demos and judging Sunday afternoon, the winning team will present onstage at Disrupt on Wednesday, September 29th. This is a great opportunity to share the spotlight alongside the top startups chosen from Disrupt’s Startup Battlefield.
The event is being organized by Daniel Raffel and Tarikh Korula – the same team of hacker experts that pulled off our New York Disrupt Hack Day. Participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects/apps/hacks in 24hrs. Anything goes as long as it’s created onsite. One additional caveat: no powerpoint presentations allowed!
Space for the Hackathon is limited but we hope to accommodate as many teams and individuals as we can. Applications will open September 1 7 on the Disrupt website and will remain open based on availability. If you’re not a developer/hacker/designer we will be inviting press and fans to come and watch the final demos on the Sunday. You’ll receive a confirmation email as the date approaches.
To make it all happen, we’re teaming with Kosmix, SendGrid, Mashery, Alcatel-Lucent, Media Temple and a growing list of others who are sponsoring and sending and sending a team of veteran hackers too. There are lots of ways to support and participate in the Hackathon. Please contact Heather Harde or Jeanne Logozzo to learn more.
