About this event

Have you had an idea brewing, have you started tinkering away on your next great startup, are you looking to collaborate with other GA students/alums. Come one, come all, to GA’s first hackathon and BUILD the product you love.

Prereqs & Preparation

Idea Pitchers If you are the project manager for your idea, strap in and get ready. You will have 3 minutes to convince the attendees why your idea rocks and that they should help you make it a reality. If you don’t have a project manager, you need to find one. The quality of your idea and delivery of your pitch could help you secure the top talent, so get ready! Please note that there are other projects that need help, so share the talent. :) Ultimately, it’s up to you to find people to work on your project. Project Managers Duty calls! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to locate designers and developers who need your sage guidance to get the project done on time. Otherwise, you are the backbone of this Hackathon. Without you, we are all lost. User Experience Designers We need you now more than ever. Your job is to wield your insight and empathy to make this world a better place, one pixel at a time. You will get to take a look at the projects and see if there’s anything you want to work on, link up with a project manager to let them know if their project tickles your fancy, or get ready to test your luck with the Fish Bowl of Random Ideas. Developers Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted - one moment, would you capture it, or let it slip? This is what you’ve been training for. Without you, we have nothing. Before you are eager idea pitchers looking to see what you’ve got and designers itching to work with you. Show us what you got!
