Register for first-ever GEOINT Hackathon June 12-14 2015!

Posted on June 8, 2015. Filed under: IGIS Support, Networking | Tags: , , |

GEOINT Hackathon participants will be challenged to create an open-source solution within a roughly 40-hour timeframe of Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. This is a GEOINT hack and location matters! The geography of interest and specific hack goal will be announced Friday evening during the 6 p.m. kick-off briefing.

There is no cost to register for the GEOINT Hackathon. Just visit connect.usgif.org, create an account, and select “Upcoming Events” from the sidebar menu. The “USGIF Hackathon” is listed at the bottom of this page.

And here’s a hint: We are more interested in fostering collaboration than creating apps. All collaboration-centric coders are encouraged to sign up. The winning team will not only receive the cash prize but also passes to attend GEOINT Foreword and the GEOINT Symposium, where they will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with industry, government, and academic leaders.

Register:
To register for the GEOINT Hackathon, please visit connect.usgif.org, create an account, and select “Upcoming Events” from the sidebar menu. The “USGIF Hackathon” is listed at the bottom of this page. There is no cost to register.

The GEOINT Hackathon is limited to 150 participants. Everyone is required to present a government-issued photo ID to participate. Any non-U.S. citizens are required to provide a copy of their Lawful Permanent Residence status (green card), Visa, or other legal citizenship documentation.

What is a Hackathon?
Hackathons typically start with one or more presentations about the event and the specific subject, if any. Participants then suggest ideas and form teams based on individual interests and skills. The main work of the hackathon begins and can last anywhere from several hours to several days. For hackathons that last 24 hours or longer, especially competitive ones, eating is often informal with participants subsisting on food like pizza and energy drinks. Sometimes sleeping is minimal with participants sleeping on-site in sleeping bags

At the end of hackathons, there is usually a series of demonstrations in which each group presents its results. There is sometimes a contest element as well, in which a panel of judges select the winning teams, and prizes are given. At many hackathons, the judges are made up of organizers and sponsors.

USGIF’s GEOINT Hackathon will be run very similarly to the typical example.

Location:
Herndon, VA
