Where are all the Hackathons?

Hackathons in Melbourne for rest of 2015

Heaps of people have found my blog, followed my Twitter and seen what I’m doing on Facebook. I’ve frequently been asked “where will you be next?” “I want to be in a hackathon” “when’s the next one”. So I thought I’d compile a list of hackathons coming up in Melbourne before the end of the year.

    1. Not yet – the registration links for these are not live yet. Will post as soon as they are (I’m organising these two and therefore control the registration) 😉
