Hackathons are technology development Marathons that draw on the
talents and initiative of bright minded volunteers – developers, engineers,
technologists, designers, and anyone with a passion and desire to have an
immediate impact on the world.
They are open to anyone who has a passion for making a difference and are focused on developing real solutions to global challenges.
This hackathon is part of a larger process of deﬁning challenges relevant to earth and space, intensively working to prototype solutions over the course of the April 11-12, 2015 weekend, and subsequently reﬁning and implementing the most promising prototypes.
NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of additional government collaborators and local partner organizations.
This year it will run in more than 125 locations throughout the globe, Tunisia will take part of it for th first time.
Participants will collaborate to build software, hardware, data visualization,
and any other solutions.
All solutions must be submitted under an open source
license that permits the free and open dissemination of the work.
NASA and the other supporting organizations DO NOT own the rights to nor are committed to
utilize any solution developed during the event.
