WeCanCode HACKACTHON Mexico 2016

For the third consecutive year, WeCanCode along with the partnership of Advancio, will join forces on September 23 and 24 to host Hack Mexico 2016 in the city of Ensenada.

Coders, engineers, designers, inspiring entrepreneurs, and brilliant minds from the nation will gather for 24 hours to form a tech hub at Cetys University Campus Ensenada.

Students, seasoned programmers, and thought geniuses will gather to develop a project of their choice to showcase their coding capabilities, pitch skills, and ultimately, their ability to produce a fully and capable product or service, and deploy it to market. If this task were not challenging enough, teams will go up against four judging criteria: innovation of the idea, functional implementation, overall quality and visual appeal, and overall market impact.
