    Que es un Hackathon?

    Las Hackatones son maratones de desarrollo de tecnología que giran entorno a talentos e iniciativas de voluntarios de mente brillante, tanto  desarrolladores, ingenieros, técnicos, diseñadores y cualquier persona que con pasión desee tener un impacto inmediato en el mundo. Están abiertas a cualquier persona que tenga una pasión por hacer la diferencia y se centre en el desarrollo de soluciones reales a retos mundiales al final del evento.

    Antecedentes:

     El primer reto de International Apps challenge se celebró en abril de 2012 en 25 ciudades del mundo. El evento reunió a más de 2.000 participantes (edades de 16 a 70 años) para enfrentar 71 desafíos centrados en mejorar la vida en el espacio y en la tierra! Más de 100 soluciones de código abierto únicas se desarrollaron en menos de 48 horas.

     El international Space Apps Challenge fue un éxito en el 2013 con mas de 9000 participantes y  se ha convertido en un evento anual. Nuestra visión es que este desafío internacional de aplicaciones del espacio continuará dando a la gente en todas partes una oportunidad sin precedentes para desarrollar soluciones significativas para ayudar a abordar necesidades críticas aplicables a ambas, la vida en el espacio y en la tierra.
