INTRODUCING CHARLESTON SUMMER HACKS!
Have you been looking for a simple way to get more plugged in to the Charleston Tech Community? Tired of going back and forth between your home office and the beach all summer? Or have you been looking for a good excuse to learn and play with the latest technologies? (It's all moving so fast, isn't it?)
The Charleston Summer Hacks are a community-run hackathon in Charleston, South Carolina, and co-hosted by the Charleston Digital Corridor at the Charleston Tech Center. A 5-hour in-person hackathon focused on fostering innovation and collaboration to contribute to the growth of Charleston, South Carolina as a thriving technology hub.
The event brings together individuals from diverse backgrounds and skill sets, creating an inspiring environment to collaborate and develop innovative solutions to a specific problem. Our mission is to educate, empower, and enable individuals to join or grow their careers in the local tech industry and connect with likeminded builders.
Charleston Summer Hacks will be held on 3 separate days in the summer of 2023:
Each of the two events are separate hackathons and you will work on separate projects, so if schedules don't allow you to make both, just join the one you can!
You can find the second event here.
