Join us for the MarketplaceLIVE Hackathon

The MarketplaceLIVE Hackathon from the center of the digital world is back and better than ever. We are calling all puzzle solvers & hackers (for good) of all levels to join us onSaturday, November 2nd at 9:00 AM - 6:00 PMfor our hackathon taking place live from our data center at 32 Avenue of the Americas for an inspirational hack into the future of technology!We're challenging our participants to develop their own ideas on how to make a smart space, such as a data center, even smarter. By using IoT kits that we'll supply and the environmental data found in our data centers, participants will be able to get creative and re-imagine the data center of the future.

We've partnered with our friends at AngelHack, was an organization that was founded on the idea of bringing creators together, and our goal is to do just that during our hackathon. Together, participants from a wide variety of backgrounds will team up for a one-day inspirational event in an atmosphere that will foster learning, innovation and networking. Whether this is your fiftieth hackathon or your first, this will be a welcoming and collaborative space for you.

You bring the ideas, and we'll provide the fuel in the form of catered food, snacks, coffee and red bull to keep you going throughout the day! At the end of the day, we'll crown the top three teams with some serious cash prizes and tickets to MarketplaceLIVE, taking place just a few days later on Thursday November 7th at Spring Studios, NYC.

Can't wait to see you there!
