Sponsored and presented by Genuine, the 2017 HackBeanpot competition features an immersive weekend-long workshop bringing together Boston’s up-and-coming collegiate developers to learn about new technologies and work intensively on software and design projects of their choice. Participating teams of all skill levels will show off their coding prowess and compete to create original projects incorporating APIs and services from companies such as Google, Amazon, IBM Watson, Spotify and Twitter. Winning projects, which are awarded prizes in various categories, will be judged based on original coding and design skills that articulate clear use cases for each team’s final product.
Now in its fifth year, HackBeanpot emphasizes creating a diverse event, uniting college students around New England to work and learn as a team all while harnessing their creativity to develop something truly original. The three-day event also features a variety of presentations and hands-on workshops led by members of the region’s most prominent tech companies and start-ups. Additionally, each company provides mentors to help teams navigate through the development process of their projects or provide a boost to give a product that final push through the proverbial finish line.
This year’s HackBeanpot will feature participants from the Bay State’s most esteemed universities and a variety of others from the New England and Greater-New England area. Tickets are currently on sale and can be reserved at www.hackbeanpot.com. Those looking to partner or sponsor the program can email [email protected].
