El Hackathon (/el/ ˈhakəˌTHän/) is a 24hr event for developers, entrepreneurs, innovators and designers to join forces and engage in collaborative computer programming. The goal is to introduce new technologies and concepts that solve problems for the Latino community or tap into the Latino market. El Hackathons is a launch pad for ideas, a place where developers, designers, entrepreneurs and curious folk can meet and build creative projects.
This year’s El Hackathon is the second annual event for LATISM and will be held November 13 – 15, 2014 at Sheraton Anaheim Hotel, Anaheim, CA. Last year, LATISM awarded 3 innovators top prizes including the overall winning team Legitimo – the mobile app that allows you to make simple contracts on your smartphone in under 1 minute, in English or Spanish. Who will take home first prize this year?
We are calling for all the innovators who have the next big idea! We encourage you to develop fun projects that take into consideration issues revolving education, health, business in the Lationo community. You don’t have to be an expert developer to participate; you just need to have the drive to learn and play with code!
El Hackathon is sponsored by Mobile Future who will award $1000 to the 1st Place Team! The judges panel will consist of Latino Innovator leaders such as Felix Ortiz, Sal Mendoza and Giovanni Rodriguez.
