The hackathon is a 24-hour event in which intermediate to advanced developers and designers work in groups to design and build the best Android or iOS wearables app among all of the teams.

Win Prizes and Recognition

The competition culminates with a pitch event in which each team presents their applications to a panel of judges made up of notable DFW-area business, design and technology leaders, and the highest-scoring teams will win prizes, recognition, and perhaps a few valuable connections.

Inspire Future Innovators

What makes hack|ED a bit different from other hackathons is that, in addition to standard judging criteria such as quality of user experience and innovation; teams will be evaluated on how well they articulate the process, thinking and skills that went into their creation to the education track participants, most of whom will have just finished their first-ever dev project.

So get ready to inspire future of innovators while having fun, making connections and building cool tech!
