Nash Hack Weekathon - 48-hour Open Hackathon
through PK Pictures

Join a team, form a team, or start working on a solo project during the 48-hour open hackathon.

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:

  1. 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. The public is welcome to attend the competition to see who is selected as a featured team.
  2. 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, tech stack planning, and more – to improve their project ideas.
  3. Hackathon: Join a team, start a team, or work on an individual project during the 48-hour community hackathon.
  4. Presentations/Demos: Featured teams will present their projects for prizes. Everyone else is invited to demo their work science-fair style for other awards.

We’re excited to bring this event to the community and can’t wait to see the projects come alive during the hackathon!
