Welcome, new listeners!
This is a special edition of the show which will be useful for anyone who has an interest in sponsoring hackathons.
Producer Daniel turns the tables and interviews me about my experience at HackCon, an exclusive event for hackathon organizers. The result is an executive summary which focuses on the bits that matter for sponsors. In the next 36 minutes, you can expect insights and takeaways from the most interesting talks & breakout sessions.
I flew 3000 miles from California to Brooklyn and spent 2 days learning and networking to bring you this information.
Thanks for listening, and if you have an interest in hackathons as a developer evangelism or recruiting channel, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me twitter.com/jnconkle to say hi :).
HackCon is put on by Major League Hacking. If you don't already know MLH, they are like the NCAA of college hackathons, they sanction hundreds of events in the USA, plus a few in Canada, Mexico, the UK, the EU, and Asia. Attending HackCon were 230 organizers, 8 sponsors including Twilio and Thiel Capital, as well as the entire MLH team.
