In mere weeks, the TC juggernaut rolls into New York for Disrupt, and that means we’re going to be giving hackers all over the East Coast (and beyond) an epic platform to show just how amazing their tech scene is.
When it comes to Hackathaons, the N.Y. scene has traditionally put Silicon Valley to shame. Everyone remembers GroupMe, born at Disrupt in 2010, who then went on to kill at SXSW a year later and exit to Skype six months after that. But is it really a surprise that the City That Never Sleeps does so well at Hackathons?
Of course not. And now it’s time to do it all again, with ticket sales for the New York TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon opening today.
This year we’ve lined up a panel of amazing API partners who’ll be on hand to give you inside running and unprecedented access into many of the platforms that power the web today (we’ll be announcing them in a few weeks). As always, we’ve used the power of the TechCrunch brand to attract the smartest minds in technology, investment and media to judge and join in, and the event will be stocked with enough pizza, caffeine and Wi-Fi to keep you going all through the night.
Spaces are limited, so to reserve your space at the event, click here.
Update: The first set of Hackathon tickets are now sold out. Check back next week when our next batch of tickets will be released.
