YC Hacks - August 2-3

by Y Combinator6/12/2014

We’re hosting a hackathon this summer at YC in Mountain View. Our goal is to give smart hackers an excuse to get together and spend time building something they find interesting. We don’t have a theme—we want to leave it open to any good ideas.

The hackathon will start Saturday, August 2 at noon, and end August 3 in the early evening. Several YC companies that develop platforms, services and developer tools, will be around to act as mentors. Judging will happen the evening of the 3rd—we haven’t figured out all the prizes yet, but the top teams will get guaranteed YC interviews for the next batch.
Application deadline: June 27
Invitations will be sent by July 7
