At Hack City -- participants will spend two days applying their information technology skill sets to challenges posed by our known resource contraints. They will emerge from the design charette with new strategies (maybe a few apps and data visualizations) that will generate radical efficiencies across key VERGE markets.
We are shaping this event as Hackathon 2.0 - connecting the entrepreneurial engine behind the developer community, with the companies that can get the apps an product in front of the right markets; in other words, Hacking to Scale.
VERGE brings together business innovators entrepreneurs, and leading civic leaders to illuminate the opportunities for radical efficiencies created through technology advancements in energy, buildings and transportation.
