Last year we ran our first ever hackathon online with over 4,000 makers participating from all over the world. 🌎
This year we’re calling our 2018 hackathon a Makers Festival, welcoming all types of makers to build together over Thanksgiving week. It’s a chance to connect with other makers to solve interesting problems, challenge yourselves to create something from scratch and win your very own kitty award (more on that later). 😉
Who is Makers Festival for?
Makers Festival is for everyone! Not just coders. All types of Makers and Creators are welcome to participate: Designers, photographers, illustrators, artists, writers, videographers, etc.
What can you make?
You can make anything — it doesn’t have to be an app, bot or website. It might be an e-book, interview series, photography collection, a painting, a song, etc.
