The hackathon will take place May 2-4 (starting with pizza) and it will bring together competitors from across the Americas at the University of Miami Life Science and Technology Park’s Miami Innovation Center. The challenge for the hackathon will be Doing Social Good: Using Technology to Solve Problems in Communities in Emerging Markets.
“The Hackathon is the ultimate event that will engage developers, designers, entrepreneurs and technology enthusiasts in the overall eMerge Americas Techweek event,” said Brian Breslin, founder of Refresh Miami, in a recent interview to Nancy Dahlberg’s The Starting Gate.
Apps will be judged based on the criteria below
- Ability to clearly articulate the functionality of the app.
- Difficulty of technical implementation (will provide judges a guide based on specific APIs and technology stacks).
- How well the technology works
The hackathon is part of a week-long event in Miami to foster innovation starting May 1st until 7th.
