What a great day at #hackmtl ! Folks were very creative and we've seen very interesting projects. I was there as one of the 3 judges, and obviously, I took some pictures too :)
A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers and others such as designers collaborate intensively on software projects. Occasionally, there is a hardware component as well. Hackathons can be intended for educational or social purposes, although the goal is to create usable software.
// #hackmtl Arts Digitaux : a hackathon on digital arts
Saturday May 24th, MTL NewTech and Notman House are partnering to get together programmers, artists, and entrepreneurs to celebrate digital creativity, during Montreal's Printemps Numerique.
A hackathon will take place from 8.30am to 6pm, with participants challenged to team up and create new applications and new tools for digital arts and digital creativity. Can you program a new music instrument? What about new tools for photographers? Can you work with a fashion designer and find new ways to design clothing with a mobile app? Better yet, what about making it accessible to anyone, and let them share their work to millions of others?
