Duke it out with 50 other developers, designers, and analysts to make an application using one or more sponsored APIs. Teams present to a panel of judges for fame and prizes!

HackREGINA is our 5th bi-annual hackathon in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.  Teams of developers, designers, and analysts compete to make the most interesting, exciting, and usable application using one or more of the sponsoring APIs.  At the end of the day, each team presents their project to a panel of judges and the other teams, hoping to be awarded the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place prize!  Join us the evening before the event for our kick-off party, a great place to exchange ideas and network with your peers and the event sponsors.  Of course, the day of the event we'll be sure everyone is fed and watered.  And after the day is finished we'll wrap up with some catering and a nice drink.
