SXSW Interactive Hackathon 1.0

SXSWHackA health hackaton is such an exciting proposition. Solving opportunities in the healthcare world is what all of us, at a very fundamental level, are trying to do. Not long ago “Health” was not part of SXSW Interactive and now look at us! Several of us saw an opportunity and SXSW Interactive was so gracious to hear us out.

Now SXSW Interactive is having it's first Hackathon and what is the topic you ask? ….. Health.

(via @SXSW)

SXSW Interactive is hosting their first ever Hackathon and what better place to have it than in our own town? We are looking to help find a solution for a medical/health industry head-scratcher (data to be provided). That's where you come in! Join in our 24 hour Hackathon to help make a difference and to be one of the winning teams! (Everyone wants to attend SXSW in March 2013 right??!)

Sign up your team (teams can be up to 5 people) or come and link up with some cool people to work with on the day-of.
