Sacramento Hacker Lab hosts Cereal Hack Feb 8

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Sacramento Hacker Lab will host a 32 hour competition on Feb 8 — Cereal Hack. The on-site 3D printer provided by Sierra College CACT will be available to teams to use during Cereal Hack.

Hacker Lab explains how it works: You can “come alone or with a team to get together and build out an idea. If you are looking for people to join your team you can give a 60 second pitch to attract team members. Networking will also be done to meet, mingle, and build teams. Once teams are established, they will begin planning and building out their project. At the end of the hackathon, the projects and teams will be presented and judged in a competition-like setting for prizes.”
