We are proud to be part of the first Publishing Hackathon! The organizers of the Publishing Hackathon are inviting designers, engineers, programmers, an entrepreneurs to spend 36 hours together in teams to developer a new approach to digital book discovery.
The Publishing Hackathon will take place on May 18th and 19th at The Alley NYC, the leading digital co-working space in New York. The participants will be briefed by a cross-section of book publishing leaders, and then will form teams to create apps, websites, programming or businesses that can address the issue of book discovery in this rapidly evolving landscape. At the end of the weekend, a team of judges from publishing, technology, media and venture capital will identify the 3 to 5 most promising finalists from dozens of teams participating.
