AEC Hackathon

January 25 - January 27

Take part in the coolest Tech Hack within AEC!
On January 25-27 BLOXHUB and the international hackathon organization AEC Hackathon invites you to join cool nerds and great minds to hack solutions
for future construction and urban development. That includes Developers, Engineers, Architects, Builders etc. who wants to challenge the way we think and work within the built environment. By having access to software, 
hardware, and data, it is an amazing opportunity to test and explore new ideas.

What is the AEC Hackathon?
BLOXHUB partners up with the international hackathon organization AEC Hackathon. An organization that originated in Seattle WA and has held events in numerous locations like Berlin, Shanghai, Paris, etc. The AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) Hackathon was created to give those designing, building, and maintaining our built environment the opportunity to collaborate with cutting-edge technologies and its developers and designers. It has quickly become a community of innovators that include all elements of the built environment, not just AEC. Check out http://aechackathon.com/ for more info on the organization.
