Have you ever thought of an Evil Plan? Have you ever conceived a Dastardly Plot to flood New York City by making its inhabitants so fat that it sinks into the ocean, or use a mobile app to marshal an army of penguins to take over secret nuclear silos in Antarctica to blackmail the UN, or something equally zany and Pinky-and-the-Brain-esque? If so, this is the hackathon for you!
ProtoHack exists to show entrepreneurs that they can create something amazing from nothing without having to write a single line of code. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge, and know-how that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping. But on this April Fool’s Day, we’re doing things a bit differently! You’ll still learn all about the tools and processes that entrepreneurs need to leverage to succeed, but through an INSANELY EVIL COMPETITION!
ProtoHack requires no coding. Instead, you’ll be using prototyping tools, drag and drop editors, mockups, wireframes and anything else you think of to visually demo your idea on stage. Competitors will work in teams (up to 5) or solo.
ProtoHack is a 12-hour experience where you will build a prototype that communicates an idea visually. During ProtoHack you’ll learn how to use the best prototyping tools in the industry, network with like-minded people with various backgrounds, become a better product person, and receive access to prototype tools, learning communities, and other prizes just for attending (up to $300-400 value!)
