5th Annual Boston Cleanweb Hackathon
Hosted by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in partnership with Greentown Labs, the Boston Cleanweb Hackathon is a weekend-long technology competition that brings together programmers, software developers, entrepreneurs, energy experts and thought leaders to jump start creative ideas for new cleanweb apps. Their challenge is to compete for cash prizes in a race to create user-friendly web and mobile applications designed to help consumers and businesses use energy and natural resources more efficiently.
Participants are given 30 hours to form teams and create an application that addresses energy, waste, water, transportation, food or other energy and sustainability issues using web, data analytics, and mobile technologies. Winning teams are selected by a panel of judges drawn from sponsors, industry experts, the regional business community and government leaders.
