TechCrunch Disrupt Hack Day (2010)

Uncommon Projects Co-Founder Tarikh Korula teamed up with Yahoo! Senior Product Manager Daniel Raffel and Etsy CTO Chad Dickerson to organize the TechCrunch Disrupt Hack Day. Taking place in New York City for the TC Disrupt conference, Hack Day was attended by over 350 of New York’s most talented developers. Devs formed into 60 teams that prototyped their creations in a 24 hour marathon, then presented them in 90 seconds each. Hacks included mobile phone controlled robots, voice playable videogames and numerous web API mashups. Hack Day was envisioned as an open platform for New York’s best developers to team up, prototype and present their creations. Winners presented in front of TC Disrupt’s audience of over 1500 attendees of startup founders, VCs, journalists and digerati at TC Disrupt’s culminating Startup Battlefield.
