WeCanCode Hackathon 2017
Coders, engineers, designers, inspiring entrepreneurs, and brilliant minds from the nation will gather for 24 hours to form a tech hub at ITE Instituto Tecnologico de 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.
