-----------------------------------------------------

We are excited to announce that cleverbridge along with The Mozilla Foundation will be hosting Hack to the Future, a hackathon that will bring together Chicago-area coders and educators of all skill levels to build applications that extend learning in the classroom. 

We are looking for developers of all skill levels who truly believe in unlocking the potential of Chicago-area youth through next-generation technologies to join us. In this day-and-a-half long hackathon, you’ll:

- Work alongside Chicago-area educators to build applications that can be used directly in the classroom

- Share your technical knowledge with Chicago-area educators (they’d love to learn from you!)

- Network with other developers and impact the Chicago-area community

Cost: $5, but use promo code GDI100 to waive the fee.

Meals and snacks will be provided throughout the duration of the hackathon.
