Organized and brought to you by Tampa Hackerspace, this event will feature hardware integration and much more. We're looking to go beyond phone apps and websites! Join us at SofWerx for 48 hours of hacking with NASA's vast data archive.

Event Information

For the event, dress comfortably. We'll include a few essentials and many great surprises in the swag bags. Parking will be in the Cuban Club lot. We'll provide a parking pass upon check in. SofWerx is at the corner of 19th Ave and 13th St in historic Ybor City, one block south of the Cuban Club.

Once the projects are pitched on Sunday, the judges will deliberate. We'll offer prizes in as many categories as we can based on prize sponsorships. The top three projects will be submitted to the Global Challenge Judges for consideration in the International Contest. Regardless of awards, projects may be eligible and nominated to move on to NASA's Startup Incubator Track.
