This mind-stimulating, adrenaline-fueled event attracted over 170+ coders last year and is sure to be even more exciting at eMerge Americas 2018. Hackathon participants have 24 hours to tackle complex challenges presented by industry-leading API sponsors. The reward? Thousands in prizes—and the thrill of building something amazing from the ground up. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for computer programmers and other software development professionals to collaborate on a project in a creatively-charged environment.
