24hr Hackathon Sep 20-21

Laptop on a bed

Join us for the first TECX Hackathon! Hackers and makers from around Kentucky will meet for a 24 hour hackathon. Food, coffee, and swag will be on us, so come prepared to network and build projects with technical innovators, entrepreneurial organizations, and motivated community groups.

Special Theme: Child Suicide Prevention Initiative

The special theme for the TECX 2019 hackathon will be child suicide prevention. If you do not have a project, you are strongly urged to create a project focused on assisting children, their families and their friends with suicide prevention and sustainable suicide prevention resources. Build an app, do some research, create a community to assist in this effort. A good example of technical solution is the notOK app (https://www.notokapp.com/).
