Come hack with us.

Hackathon is our most prominent competition where all-star developers, makers, and built industry experts gather for a weekend to hack solutions to anything affecting the built world around us—cities, buildings, and infrastructure.

Software Challenge

Create the best software solution to a built industry problem. If you’re a developer or want to participate on a dev team for the weekend, this track is for you.

Here’s how it works. Form teams of 3-6 hackers and choose a problem to solve.
Next, create a prototype solution in roughly 36 hours. Finally, pitch the ideas to a panel of judges.

Win up to $15,000 in prizes
