HONOLULU, HI —One of the largest hackathons in the known universe is touching down in Hawai‘i on April 22nd with the NASA Space Apps Challenge, sponsored by a consortium of local technology companies; DevLeague, Sudokrew Solutions, Ikayzo, Goma Games, and HTDC. While most hackathons focus on coding, the NASA Space Apps Challenge is designed to bring together all passionate problem solvers to create solutions with a global impact. This 48-hour event will be open to designers, artists, makers, coders, engineers, and storytellers of any age or discipline.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring a world class event like this to Honolulu. The NASA Space Apps Challenge was of particular interest to us because the event focuses on a more comprehensive STEM audience, bringing together the innovation sector as a whole and looking at solutions of truly global proportions. We hope the event will continue to grow in coming years as this is will be the first of an annual series and we are excited to partner with other organizations in the community, across many different sectors.” said Jason Sewell, co-founder of DevLeague.
Honolulu will be one of 128 host cities spanning the globe for this 48-hour event, with an event kick-off on Friday, April 22nd at the Manoa Innovation Center at 4 pm. This free event is open to the public, though space is limited to the first 70 registrants.
