Education, Health, Business & the Latino Community

El Hackathon (/el/ ˈhakəˌTHän/) is a 24hr event for developers, entrepreneurs, innovators and designers to join forces and engage in collaborative computer programming. The goal is to introduce new technologies and concepts that solve problems for the Latino community or tap into the Latino market.

We encourage you to develop fun projects that take into consideration issues revolving education, health, business in the Lationo community.
