The only requirement is that what you create must be done from scratch and within the 24 hour timeframe of the competition.


We're also pleased to be working with StartupBus ( who is bringing a bus load of NYC developers to the American Underground as the first stop on their way to SXSW.

The Hack-A-Thon will conclude Sunday night, right as the bus is pulling in to American Tobacco.

Expect to meet fellow developers from around the East Coast. Even better, grab a beer with them and keep hacking on those good ideas!
