Hackathon, you say? Event blurbage:

This 24 hour hackathon will be open to students (18+), professionals, and anyone that wants to put their development skills to the test. You and your team will work through the night to create an app that will wow, impress and inspire your fellow developers and the judging panel. The weekend will begin with the challenge reveal during Opening Ceremonies, coding will start immediately following opening remarks and continue until hour 24! All submitted apps will be presented, judged and awards will be presented during closing ceremonies.
Throughout the competition participants will be provided meals, snacks and yes, lots of coffee and energy drinks. Along with the main competition, Hack Tech Valley will have several categories open for prizes. Need a break from all of the coding? Check out one of the games or other side challenges.
