The Biggest Bay Area Code-a-thon Yet!
Please join us for a special 2-day code-a-thon running the weekend before our massive San Francisco Conference. As part of Health Innovation Week, we expect to put on our largest code-a-thon ever with innovators from throughout the Bay Area joining us for an intense weekend of hacking, developing and creating.
We will be featuring a number of excellent tech talks from speakers who will be discussing cutting edge issues in technology and giving you a way to connect you with the local San Francisco Developer Community. The event culminates in an all-star judging session with the best creations taking home some serious cash prizes.
The code-a-thon will take place this Saturday – Sunday, September 24th and 25th. Registration is FREE, but you must sign up so we can save you a seat for the day!

WHAT CAN I WORK ON?
The spirit of the code-a-thon is to build application and tools that improve health. During the morning project pitch, attendees are asked to present ideas and topics they would like to see built. You can form teams based off of interest, or arrive with a pre-formed group.
WHAT ABOUT THE PRIZES?
At the end of the code-a-thon on Sunday we will have a judging session and some of you will walk away with some fantastic prizes. We currently have more than $10,000 allocated for prize money and will be giving away a number of awards.
