Then, if you’re a student 18 years or older in high school or an undergraduate or graduate student in college, you can participate in the third annual HackTX hackathon kicking off Saturday, Oct. 18 and running into Sunday.
The event will take place in the student activity center at the University of Texas at Austin. You must register to participate.
Dell and Major League Hacking support the event which will allow students to show off their coding, design and other skills.
“Hundreds of students will be teaming up with their fellow Longhorns and peers from colleges and institutions throughout the southwest and as far as Mexico to create websites, applications and hardware projects,” according to a news release. “Over the course of 24 hours with very little sleep, these teams will take their ideas from a harebrained concept to an actual working project that can be in an expo on Sunday.”
Other sponsors for the event include Microsoft, Trip Advisor and DIRECTV. Event organizers are expecting more than 600 students in the region to participate, in its largest HackTX to date.
