FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tresata will host the second annual Hackathon CLT on April 25-26 at Packard Place in Uptown Charlotte. The team-based competition will offer area tech developers, designers, analysts, and others an opportunity to test and showcase their skills in a fast-paced overnight hackathon to solve a business problem using big data and mobile technology.
Tresata, a predictive analytics software applications company, along with Harris Teeter spearheaded the Hackathon movement in Charlotte in 2013 as a way to spark ongoing conversations and opportunities in Charlotte’s growing tech scene.
“We saw tremendous need in Charlotte for an outlet that challenges and celebrates an often-overlooked technology pool,” said Abhishek Mehta, Tresata CEO. “And we looked to strategic Charlotte area businesses to make it happen.”
This year Data Chambers, ettain group, Harris Teeter, and P&G have joined Tresata to make the Hackathon an even bigger event than last year where hundreds of developers participated.
HackathonCLT MMXIV kicks off Friday, April 25 with the city’s biggest developer party celebrating Charlotte’s tech community and runs through the night culminating in a final pitch for cash prizes on Saturday afternoon. The grand prize is $4,000 with a $1,000 runner up prize.
