SPARC Hackathon 5, presented by SPARC Gives, is returning to its overnight format! Because everyone knows superheros only show their true identity at night! (That’s right, Batman…) Our superhero coders will take the building by storm on Friday night for 18 hours of development madness. The party will open the public on Saturday for presentations, judging, and a killer party. Sorry kiddos, the adults are having all of the fun this year. You must be 18 or older to watch these super heros squash the evil bugs!
The competition is open to everyone from Superman to Mighty Mouse – contestants range from seasoned engineers to students fresh out of their first computer science class. The judging categories include iOS, Android, and Responsive Web App. Teams can have up to three participants, so Secure your two sidekicks, and sign up to geek out for this marathon of code and comics!
Contestants will have plenty of food, coffee, and beer – whatever is your source of coding power – to fuel their bodies and brains! Additionally, all teams will showered in swag and goodies thanks to our amazing sponsors.
Fight for your app against evil villains (also known as a panel of relatively-friendly judges) to determine which team truly has the most super-human coding strength. Each team has the opportunity to battle and prove themselves worthy of the top honor. The winners will be handsomely rewarded with cash, bragging rights, and ultimate glory.
After saving the world one app at a time, superheroes, evil villains, and common street folk alike will join forces for one epic blowout at the end of the day on Saturday. Capes and costumes are encouraged! Top ten presentations begin at 8:00 PM but the celebration is sure to last into the wee hours of the night.
Every year our community assembles to create a special experience for all. Find out how you can become a part of the team!
