More than a thousand high school and college student programmers from all over the world converge in Philadelphia twice a year for a weekend of creating and learning. Hackathons are about coding together to solve real-world problems. Students work in teams of up to four people for thirty-six hours to create a web, mobile, or hardware application. A panel of professional judges will select the best three apps based on the following criteria: creativity, technical difficulty, polish, and usefulness. The winners will be annouced January 18th.
