Hackaday Prize Worldwide: New York City: Hackaday partners with TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon @hackaday @techcrunch

NewImage

Saturday May 2, 2015 – Sunday May 3rd Hackaday is partnering with TechCrunch Distrupt hackathon for 20 hours of hardware! Check out more information here.

TechCrunch is well known for their hackathons; huge gatherings of software devs building pretty amazing things in under 24 hours.

RSVP on Eventbrite, spots are limited.

We’re bringing a bunch of hardware to hack on. You may bring your own but assembly and coding all needs to be done on-site.

The hacking actually starts at 1:30pm on Saturday. Enjoy dinner at 7, food and snacks at midnight, and breakfast at 7am the next morning all included as part of the free ticket.

You NEED to Win this Thing

It’s often said that Hardware is Hard, but it’s also really cool. We think that could give you an edge over the software-only hacks. What a great story it would be for the Hackaday crowd to come in and take the top prize!

TWENTY HOURS OF HARDWARE

Show up at 12:30pm on Saturday, May 2nd. By 9:30am the next morning you must have a working piece of hardware having been totally built on-site. Starting at 11am on Sunday you have 60-seconds to show off your build.

We’re not kidding around when we say the judging criteria for this hackathon is “Awesomeness”. TC is putting up $5,000 to the winning team. Obviously someone who hangs out around Hackaday should be the winner here so go sign up!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
