Come out to Brooklyn and hack out of a 25,000 square foot warehouse! We want to encourage collaboration between students, artists, and developers and anybody else interested in learning and creating.
The event will be hosted at Pioneer Works in Red Hook and there will be food provided by some of the best local food trucks and restaurants. There are no limits to what you can build - mobile apps, web apps, hardware hacks - anything you want!
We'll have prizes for hacks that address certain community issues, several company sponsored prizes, and overall grand prize for best hack.
