The Hackathon takes place during Silicon Beach Fest, June 21-23

Southern California has finally emerged as power house in the tech scene, and in honor of this accomplishment, Silicon Beach Fest is throwing a major Hackathon during the festival from June 21st to 23rd. The Hackathon will consist of three days of 15 invite-only teams going head-to-head to win over $50,000 worth of prize money.

Each team will have just over 48 hours to present their creations to the esteemed panel of CEO Judges, including the CEO’s of DataPop, ParkMe, GumGum and an EIR from IdeaLab. On the development side, prestigious teams from Originate, Hautelook, Disney Interactive and many more will be competing in the codefest.

What’s separating this Hackathon from others is a dozen CTO coaches on-hand to lead hackers to the promised land. With some of the CTO coaches coming from companies like Hautelook, Gamzee, DataPop, Mogreet and PageWoo, this unique combination of new and established talent will lead to some interesting projects in software development.
