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!

Bike Parking:
Free bike parking is available in front of Cummins Station. Don't forget your bike lock and reflectors for riding home at night!

Less Than $1 or Free Street Parking:
All of the parallel parking spaces along the front of Cummins Station (and the nearby streets) are free after 6pm (http://www.parkitdowntown.com/parking/on-street-parking). A few of these spots are reserved for valet in the evenings, so if you see a valet sign, park elsewhere.
If you arrive earlier than 6pm, put in just enough exact change to cover you until the spots turn free at 6PM.

The Frist Parking Lot:
Across the street from Cummins Station, is the cheapest paid parking option.
Rates: $1.50 first 1/2 hour; $6 first hour; $3 each additional hour; $24 daily max; Special events pricing as posted.

Note: this parking lot is on the north side of Cummins Station, and Eventbrite is on the south side. However, you can enter Cummins Station from the North and walk through the inside of the building to get to the Eventbrite office.

Paid Lot Parking:
Two paid parking lots are available directly across from Cummins Station. Last time we inquired, the rates was $6/hour after 5PM, with a maximum evening cost of $12, unless there is a special event pricing in effect.

If you eat in a restaurant in Cummins Station, you can get your parking validated, which reduces the cost to free in many cases.
