Our hackathon brings together students, entrepreneurs, and industry professionals with the goal of identifying agricultural issues and proposing technological solutions. This event begins on Friday night with a keynote speech from Warren Bills (xarvio), then the floor is open for individuals or companies to pitch their ideas to be 'hacked!' On Saturday, teams 'hack' issues and design a technological solution (software, hardware). Teams then present their designs to a panel of judges.
