Inspiration

tired of visiting the facebook/twitter/slack/website for information at hackathons.

What it does

makes life easy for both organizers and participants at hackathons.

it's a central hub where organizers can post information about their upcoming hackathon and participants can access this information without having to create any accounts.

participants can also receive desktop push notifications when an organizer posts a new announcement - for example, when food has arrived.

How we built it
