Hackathon Teams

It takes all of us to build great software - developers, designers, product managers and business strategists. We all work together to deliver solutions that users love and tell all their friends about.

Hackathon teams are no different. Everybody plays an important part in the overall application – so join in the fun, even if you don’t code! If you don’t have a team, we’ll find you one where your skills are needed and you can let your freak flag fly.
