A hackathon for the students of the Horizons Bootcamp. Build something in 24 hours with the skills you've learned over the past 6 weeks!

The Horizons Hackathon is a chance to take the new skills you have learned as a developer and to build something with it in 24 hours.

There are three categories of submissions eligible for prizes at the Horizons Hackathon:

Music: Build a project that seeks new, innovative ways to discover, share, or listen to music. We want to see ideas and working projects that creatively utilize existing music services to make the listening experience better than ever.

Fitness/Health: Build a project that integrates with health services in fitness-related applications. We want to see these projects shine in helping athletes, trainers, and Abhi to reach their goals in fitness.

Lifestyle/Utility: Build a project that is generally useful and connects well with lifestyle services and apps. We want to see these projects succeed in providing practical solutions to everyday problems.
