Hacking is building things that you always wanted to have but no one has built it yet. It's to come up with an amazing idea and work tirelessly on it. It is to fail, fail again until you succeed. Try out new things and learn while doing that. It's to work together, collaborate and build things that are innovative. It is to be a better programmer.

With that spirit, Draper University is conducting a hackathon - Hackathon | Draper University and invites all developers and hackathon enthusiasts to participate in an interesting and engaging hackathon.

Draper University is happy to announce its summer hackathon.

By getting involved you will be joining hackers, product developers, marketers, business leaders and Draper University entrepreneurs.

The HEROthon is held simultaneously with Draper University's Summer Hero Training program.

Challenge Challenge yourself to solve a big problem, innovate without limits, and set out to bring positive change in the world. Use your entrepreneurial spirit to incorporate next generation technology such as AI, machine learning, IoT, blockchain, big data or incorporate hardware to solve a big problem in the world.

Details Join a Draper University entrepreneur in hacking and pitching within 40 hours. Teams will have a chance to pitch to Draper U Ventures and Draper Associates. Winning teams get prizes and will be published on Draper University social channels. Must be over 18 to participate.
