Technology is having a tremendous impact on healthcare with innovative solutions being developed to help diagnose and treat diseases, the creation of advanced prosthetic devices, and much more. For geekspeak’s 4th annual hackathon, Body Hack, participants will work in teams for 36-hours to create a hardware and/or software prototype that addresses a healthcare issue. We want to demonstrate how technology can be used to improve the lives of people locally as well as around the world.

 

Professional and student software developers, designers, marketers, healthcare workers, engineers and more are welcome to attend the hackathon. Teams will consist of 2-5 members. Join as a team of 5 or we’ll match you up with others with complementary skills.   

 

Challenge Yourself

Put together a concept, develop your software and/or hardware prototype and present it to a panel of judges, all in 36 hours. It’s an exciting challenge and a great opportunity to meet others, share ideas and have fun!
