Recs Hack Day

Recommendation API hackathon

13 14 April 2013

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Join us in beautiful Greenville, SC for Recs Hack Day based on and around recommendations. The goal of the event is for creatives and builders to collaborate to build cool stuff or solve real problems. We want to see rapidly prototyped apps & projects that show the value of relevant recommendations. The ideal project will focus on personalization, relevance and of course, value for the user.

In short: you’ve got 24 hours to team up, hack and present your project to the judges on Sunday afternoon. You can join as an already formed team or meet other participants on site to discuss ideas, which we can help with. The best hacks are going to be awarded with prizes.
