5 reasons to participate in a hackathon

As we wrap up another successful Hack the Dot event in Portland, all of us at Name.com are reminded once more just how amazing hackathons can be. When you put a bunch of excited, innovative people in a room together and give them the task of creating something amazing, the results are often beyond words. Strangers become colleagues, ideas become reality, and kegs become tapped.

If you’re never participated in Hack the Dot or a similar event, you’re missing out. Here are some of the top reasons to participate in a hackathon in your community.

Enter our Embarrassing .FAMILY Photo contest and you could win a GoPro HERO+!

This time of year is a good reminder that your family is, well, a little colorful. But rather than letting it remind you of your embarrassing childhood or the cringeworthy hairstyle you rocked back in 5th grade, now is the time to embrace your family and all of their quirks.

Enter our Embarrassing .FAMILY Photo contest, in honor of .FAMILY’s upcoming release, and you could win a GoPro HERO+, an Amazon Echo, subscriptions to Ancestry.com, and more!
