Red Hook was a neighborhood hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. In that spirit, The Feast has organized a hardware hackathon there, oriented toward disaster recovery.
The hackathon coincides with the invite-only Feast Conference 2014, also in Red Hook. It’s all going down at Pioneer Works, Oct. 10-11.
This hackathon sounds a little different. Organizers are looking for existing projects for teams to refine.
Technologists and entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pilot their solutions in the Red Hook community and get their hardware into the hands of local stakeholders, gathering insight and feedback in order to refine their prototypes into tools that address pressing needs.
Apply here. If your team is accepted into the hackathon, you’ll also get a free ticket to the full conference, which costs $1,500. Applications are open till Sept. 30.
The Feast’s hackathon will be supported by Intel and the Department of Homeland Security.-30-
