The Fourth Annual

What is the
Baltimore Hackathon?

Come embark on a 48 hour journey as we set sail with other innovators, creatives, thinkers and doers for a weekend full of learning and healthy competition. The three themes will navigate your ideas. Maybe it’s a problem that needs to be solved, an idea without the time, a skill that could help someone else, or just silly geekry, we welcome all skill levels and reasons for hanging out. Choose your own adventure for a chance to win some serious treasures.

We welcome all ages and skill levels.
