Besides making games, I try to be active in the Tucson community. Right now I’m organizing one of the first ever Tucson Hackathons!
From the events page:
What’s it all about?
It’s about meeting and getting to know more of the local Tucson tech community while doing something fun! The Interweb is amazing, but it can’t compare to hanging out in person with a group of like-minded people. A hackathon is an exciting, fast pasted, stimulating event where you can make a crazy cool idea into something real!
What can you do in 24 hours?
Form a team of at least 2 people (must be present to win) and create something from start to finish. You could build a complete webapp, or a cool script, or a plugin/theme or feature for a larger application. You don’t have to create something huge, but finish it and have fun.
If you already have an idea, great! You can bring a description, specs, sketches, designs, webpage mockups, etc, but all coding should be done during the 24 hour event.
On Saturday, at 3PM sharp, we’ll start calling teams up to give a short presentation. Your team will have two minutes. The judges may ask a few questions, and then on to the next team!
Judges and attendees will rate the apps and award awesome prizes to the winners!
