Hackathon! Conference attendees are invited to extend their stay two more days to attend a hackathon hosted at edX HQ. The hackathon will take place on Thursday and Friday, November 20 – 21. On Thursday we’ll start hacking around 9 am and go as late as everyone’s willing to work! We’ll finish up our projects Friday morning and present our results from 3 – 5 PM.

There are no additional fees required to participate in the hackathon. However, due to space constraints, only conference attendees will be able to participate in-person at edX HQ.
