We’re heading to the Pacific Northwest to host a Hack the Dot hackathon with General Assembly at Impact Hub next week. On July 28, 2015, 80 or so people will come together in Seattle to unleash their magical coding abilities and get nerdy. This is the first Hack the Dot to be hosted outside of Colorado, and Seattle was a natural fit to expand to first. Seattle is a city fueled by tech giants like Amazon and Microsoft, and is also home to our parent company Rightside. The people of Seattle are extremely motivated to build products with meaning, and it’s an upbeat and fun tech community.
What the heck is Hack the Dot?
Hack the Dot is a domain-driven hackathon, where participants are told an odd domain name (for example: croissant.forsale) and have 2 hours to build something funny and functional to live on that domain. But the focus of the event isn’t just about what people create for the domain. It’s more about building relationships with other people in tech communities. This makes it a fantastic event for coding school students, experienced developers, or just curious entrepreneurs. You don’t need to be a developer to participate, you just need to come ready to unleash your ideas and be willing to push your creative boundaries.

When: Tuesday, July 28, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
