About this event

GDG Hudson in collaboration with HVTechFest is bringing this amazing 30 hours of collaborative problem solving. You will experience a Lean Startup pitching and teams forming, then coding together with youth. 

2021 is the third year HVTechFest is hosting our youth Hackathon to make a difference for underserved population in Hudson Valley, NY. We are using our unique formula to inspire youth with out-of-the-box thinking,  empower with technology through collaboration:

  • Young coders teaming up with tech professional to find a solution to a problem of civic importance;
  • Using high- and low-technology functions to solve the public problems;
  • Collaborating to address real world situations

We will be using advanced staff like Google Cloud, Flutter, ML as well as low-tech Google Sites (for pitching) and the whole G-Suite during the Hackathon.
