UPDATE: OUR LOCAL AWARDS
Welcome to #NewSpaceCity!
As a founding site for the NASA Space Apps Challenge, we are proud to host our 5th annual Space Apps hackathon! Our Saturday and Sunday hackathon will take place at LMHQ, the Lower Manhattan HeadQuarters, a community shared workspace in the heart of the Financial District, run by the nonprofit Alliance for Downtown New York. Our venue is very accessible via every major subway and bus line (click the LMHQ link for more information and directions).
We're also happy to announce we are once again providing FREE DAYCARE on site with the fabulous Sitters Studio - bring your kids, check them in, and hack away all weekend long!
PLEASE NOTE: Our venue's capacity is only 125 hackers! We will register more to ensure capacity, but all entry to our event is first come, first served. Entry is NOT guaranteed!!
Visit our Space Apps NYC website for more information, and watch your email inbox for further details!
Everyone attending our event agrees to all the terms and conditions of the NASA Space Apps Challenge, as well as our own Code of Conduct.
You can also read all of our FAQs at our official site! More information will be provided to you via email as the date of the hackathon approaches.
