What is Hack(RI);

Things to Expect

We're Hacking Rhode Island

Rhode Island is the new IT spot for Computer Science, Information Technologies and startups. An innovation spurring state hackathon just makes sense!

Revolutionizing RIPTA

RIPTA is rolling out open-data feeds and they're challenging you to come up with revolutionary uses! Attend an info session in the weeks leading up to Hack(RI);

Bringing Our Own Hack (BYOH)

In addition to RIPTA, we welcome you (emplore you even) to come up with ideas and hacks of your own! Join, form or bring a team and hack Rhode Island!

First Timers

If you are new to coding, this is the hackathon for you. It starts with a team building segment designed with you in mind, and continues with plenty of workshops from API's 101 Intro to Big Data.

Jedi Knights

If you're an intermediate to advanced developer, you are going to love HackRI. We have great corporate partners and sponsors that are bringing a ton of tech, toys and workshops for you to play with and learn from.

Big Data Lovers

Big Data is a big part of Hack(RI); and its the perfect place for you to gain cutting-edge insights on the best practices for learning and leveraging big data.
