Welcome to the biggest Hack-A-Thon in Texas, organized by students at UT Austin. The event is open to all developers and creatives in Austin, students or not.

A hackathon is a 24 hour coding marathon where an indivual or team tries to create a cool software project. It could be a web application, a mobile application, a game, an algorithm, or anything cool you can come up with. Come with a team or find one at the event. You can also just work alone. 

There will be a bunch of awesome prizes, food, and caffeine provided by our great sponsors (Indeed, VMWare, Twilio, Return Path, Alsop Louie, RouteScout, Palantir, Capital Factory, and HomeAway).
