Register now for IP Summer Hackathon and Job Fair on Aug. 7th at OpenX
By Joakim Baage — July 24, 2015
The first Innovate Pasadena Summer Hackathon and Job Fair on August 7th, sponsored by OpenX and Ayzenberg, is now open for free registration on eventbrite here.
The hackathon will focus on the creation of a web and mobile app to help California and Pasadena residents specifically keep an eye on their water consumption during the worst drought in recent history. The purpose of the app will be to help individuals determine their water usage and savings potential by changing basic habits, fueling real-time ad creative as well as social sharing of individual as well as group conservation goals, when reached.
The event will also feature a job fair with recruitment teams from top local tech and creative companies such as OpenX, Ayzenberg and YP. If your company or organization is interested in participating, you can also sign up for a table on the registration page. We are looking at having around 10 companies participating in the job fair.
This is a great way to show off your hacking skills for a good cause and have the chance to win a cash prize and meet top recruiters from greater Pasadena as well as network and learn more about all the great companies in the area! The schedule for the event is below. See you on August 7th at OpenX!
